SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio River Authority (River Authority), in partnership with Bexar County, seeks to commission a permanent mural (five panels, approximately 1600 square feet) for the second segment of the San Pedro Creek Culture Park which is currently under construction. The mural may be rendered in hand-glazed or digitized porcelain tile, glass, ceramic, stone mosaic tile, or other similar material suitable for the creek environment. The mural will serve as a signature work of art for one of the most culturally significant sections of the park.
The mural will be located on the east bank of the creek, between Commerce and Dolorosa Streets. This block includes the Spanish Governor’s Palace, City of San Antonio’s Cultural Arts Division main offices and art gallery, and the historic Continental Hotel (built in the 1890’s). This opportunity is open to all professional artists, age 18 and over and residing in Bexar County. Artists must apply in teams (2-5 members) and will be responsible for the development of a cohesive design for all five panels. Teams may include artists from multiple disciplines; however, each team must include at least one visual artist.
