    Town of Vienna pARTnership seeks mural artists
    The Vienna Public Art Commission (VPAC), Vienna Shopping Center Limited Partnership, and Rappaport are partnering to bring an approximately 2,500-square-foot mural to the rear of the Rappaport-managed Vienna Shopping Center at Maple Avenue and Courthouse Road. The mural will be created along approximately 200 linear feet of the rear of the shopping center and will be visible from Cottage Street. Rappaport is generously providing financial support for this project.
    The Town’s Public Art Commission has issued a call for artists to create the mural embracing a “Small Town, Big Community” theme; artist qualifications and concept submissions are due March 31. For additional information about artist qualifications, selection criteria, and how to submit applications, visit viennava.gov/mural.
    Application of the mural is expected to begin in late spring or early summer with completion in September. A project timeline should be included in the artist’s submission as well.
    Artist selection will be determined by a panel of VPAC members, Rappaport representatives, and Town officials. Criteria includes creativity and appeal of concept presented and how well it connects with the community and theme, artist experience and portfolio, timeliness of installation, and proposed cost.
    “We’re so excited and grateful that Rappaport was willing to underwrite this public art effort,” says VPAC member Lu Cousins. “We can’t wait to see how Vienna’s ‘Small Town, Big Community’ way of life plays out in the mural. This and other public art efforts will, we know, add just a little more color and depth and richness to our community.”
    Submissions and questions should be directed to ViennaPAC@gmail.com.
