OneWall accepting artists' submissions

Libby Barbee's "Reimagining Bierstadt" OneWall at Confluence Park.

OneWall, a community-driven initiative that aims to elevate both local artists and the Denver art scene, is accepting submissions through Sept. 14 from Colorado artists for a large-scale mural.

The winning submission will be blown up to mural-sized proporations and installed on a building at 12th and Speer. Previous OneWall installations have been around 1,800 square feet.

The OneWall Project is a collaborative platform that facilitates the commission and installation of large-scale artwork on blank building walls around Denver. Underwritten with private funding and using billboard vinyl, the works are printed in high definition and temporarily exhibited around our city. By periodically installing new artwork, the process allows for heightened exposure of local artists and Denver’s cultural scene. OneWall’s digital and social channels supplement the installations with freely accessible content.

To be eligible to participate in the contest, entrants must be 18 or older and a current Colorado resident. Art should be appropriate for public use and relate to a broad audience.

Three finalists will be chosen on Sept. 20 and announced on OneWall’s Facebook page on Sept 22. Voting on OneWall Project’s Facebook page begins Sept. 22 and ends Sept. 29. In the event of a tie, the winner will be chosen by the OneWall panel of judges.
