So here it is, the specification!
Sydenham station approach which runs from the main station entrance to the high street - between WC and Station.
Type of mural:
Typography based large statement piece
Must incorporate “Sydenham”, “SE26” or a variation (e.g.: SydEnham26)
Bright colours - up to the chosen artist’s discretion to ultimately produce 2 colour schemes for voting by public (If useful - overgroundesque colours or greens to represent the wealth of parkland nearby have been suggested by a few)
Size of mural:
Height ranges from approx 7ft to 10ft (the pavement gradually slopes downward from the WC)
Width either approx 35ft (3 panels) or 48ft (4 panels)
Please contact me for any more specific measurements you would like (firstname.lastname@example.org or message on twitter @sydenhamural)
Surface: Non flat in part with some natural “frames” / edges to use
Budget: Up to £2000
All artists need Public Liability Insurance to meet Network Rail’s brief
Please provide a brief bio and/or examples of your work alongside costing, what this includes (e.g.: A set period of time whereby the artist will undertake any touch ups if damage/fading occurs to the piece) and a rough estimate of when the piece could be done (bearing in mind up to 4 weeks of crowdfunding will occur from around mid/end March)
There is a WC on the road for public use for the artist
Enquiry for special parking permits are taking place, however if not possible, the bays directly outside the mural location are for “20 mins” only which can be used for drop offs/pick-ups and permanent non-permit required locations are available nearby and will be organised to be reserved as close as possible to the site.
So, if you know an artist who’d be willing to commit to this project, please ask them for a Sydenham tailored mock-up, a quote and estimated date of completion.
The Deadline for submissions is Monday 12th March, after which voting will take place. Submissions to be sent to email@example.com.
Cannot wait to start the crowdfunder and make the Sydenham Mural a reality and depending on the success of this project there is scope for another potential commissioned piece and/or exposure through non-commissioned pieces at conformed permissiones locations around the station.
If there are no applicants, then there may be some movements in the deadline or the spec going forward.
Kind regards and keep spreading the word!
