Overture’s Community Mosaic Mural
Call for Digital Images of Original Artworks
Overture is creating a large scale mosaic in which snapshots of Overture’s community and audiences will be used to create a digital photo mosaic reproduction of an original artwork. Click here for examples of photo mosaics.
Overture is looking for artwork that will function as the “source image” for the mosaic. (Artwork can be any 2D media - photo, painting, drawing, print etc.)
Theme of the original artwork should include a celebration of arts and community at Overture Center in the Madison region or in the larger Wisconsin region.
This artwork will be permanently on display in Overture Center.
The dimensions of the final photomosaic will be approximately 5 feet tall by 20 feet long. This image can be printed and framed as one large horizontal image or several smaller vertical images (such as triptych or quadriptych style.)
The digital images should be approximately 3000 pixels in the largest dimension.
An artist honorarium of $1000 will be awarded. We may select more than one artist if the images work well together.
Please note: Overture may crop your image(s). Your image(s), if chosen, will be combined with the mosaic photographs.
To apply please fill out the online application which includes basic contact info, bio or resume, up to 10 images and an image list.
