CALLS TO ARTISTS
2017 SHINE Mural Festival - Artist: Jujmo

Deadline: July 26, 2024

Florida’s Adventure Coast Visitors Bureau, Brooksville Main Street, and the Hernando County Fine Arts Council are excited to invite artists to submit their designs for the second round of the Mermaid Tale Trail!

 

Twenty artists will be selected to paint life-sized mermaid statues that will be unveiled in November 2024. Selected artists will be paid an honorarium of $1,700.

 

Interested artists must submit the following information:

 

Four images from your portfolio. Each portfolio image should be accompanied by a title/name, description, and list of mediums used. Please name the files to include the name of the piece so the committee may clearly identify each work.

 

Mermaid designs must be submitted digitally using the provided templates (both front and back views of the statue). With each design, include a written description of your mermaid and her name.

 

Please provide an artist statement or bio, and include your current address, phone number, and email address.
