Mural Request for Proposal

Artists are invited to submit a bid to enter into a contract with The Richmond Village Association (RVA) to commission the 7th mural in the Richmond Heritage Mural Gallery.

Richmond was founded in 1818 as a British Settlement and is the oldest community within the current City of Ottawa. In 2018, Richmond, Ontario will celebrate its 200th anniversary. A variety of events will happen throughout 2017 and 2018 to honour Richmond’s past, celebrate it vibrant present and look forward toward the future. To commemorate Richmond’s Bicentennial, The Richmond Village Association is undertaking to add the 7th mural to The Richmond Heritage Mural Gallery on the Richmond Memorial Community Centre. The mural is to be completed and installed so that the unveiling of the mural can take place on Friday, June 25th, 2018.

The mural should:
• Evoke a sense of neighborhood
• Historical reference is key
• Promote excitement and interest for the community as a whole
• Celebrate the identity and rich heritage of the neighborhood
• The design concept shall be compatible with the design of the existing murals

Bid evaluation will be carried out by the RVA and will be based on a combination of artistic merit, quality of previous work as provided in your portfolio, quality of material offered and price.
