Call for Mural Artists
July 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Art on the Rail Trail (ART), a new initiative designed to bring public art installations to the Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail, is excited to announced a call for artists interested in developing an original public artwork for the north-facing wall of a Town of Bethlehem-owned building (90 Adams Street, Delmar, NY) facing the Rail Trail at Adams Street and Hudson Avenue. We welcome all artists to apply, but specifically encourage those who work in public art, murals, and mosaic. Artists, designers, studios, and teams may submit multiple concepts for this project, and artists from any location are encouraged to apply. However, preference will be given to Capital Region artists and those from the surrounding area (defined by artists living within a 100-mile radius from the Town of Bethlehem).
ART was conceived of to enrich the experiences of visitors to the Rail Trail and to encourage usage of the trail by local residents as well as regional visitors. This new committee of the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy is a collaboration between town residents, local nonprofits, with Town, County and Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce representation. While the ultimate goal is to commission various works of public art up and down the trail, this pilot project consists of one mural to be painted this year, dedicated in October. Our ideal project would create an iconic mural that becomes a landmark for both locals and visitors enjoying the Rail Trail. In line with the vision of the Friends of the Rail Trail, we encourage mural concepts that focus on the themes of connectivity and movement.
