Poor Richard’s Restaurant, which already displays the work of local artists on its walls, plans to beautify its space even further with a new mural. The restaurant hopes to decorate panels separating the kitchen from the dining area in a mural depicting regional flora, and are calling on local artists to propose their ideas. Artists could work on the panels in their own studios, and look forward to a commission fee of at least $1,500.

Interested artists should “submit a sketch or rendering of your proposed design, explanation of design plans and samples of your previous work to Laszlo@poorrichardsdowntown.com” by no later than Feb. 4 at 9 a.m. Artists will be notified on or before Feb. 15.

Another boon: The selected artist "may have the opportunity to display transportable curated artwork with a 3-month show, in the front area of the restaurant, starting at the ‘reveal’ date of the finished mural project.”

See below for detailed entry guidelines and photos of the location.



DESCRIPTION AND LOCATION: The mural is in the interior space of Poor Richard’s Restaurant and will occupy the entire center panel (72”h x 83.5”w) of a 3-panel screen and part of the two flanking panels that will be comprised of mural images integrated into textual messages about the ways the business is committed to environmental sustainability. Small painted touches to additional, smaller panels may carry the themes and imagery of the mural to other areas of the Restaurant. Artist will be able to execute work in their own studio as the panels will be mobile. The chosen artist may have the opportunity to display transportable curated artwork with a 3 month show, in the front area of the Restaurant, starting at the “reveal” date of the finished Mural Project.
THEME: Local botanical images. These may include both native species and garden vegetables, fruits and flowers that are typically grown in the Pikes Peak Region, and especially ingredients utilized in our food offerings—such as tomatoes, peppers, basil, etc…
STYLE: The style will naturally be determined by the artist who is ultimately selected. We are thinking about a simple, loose graphic style in harmony with the new color palette of the space.
HOW AND WHAT TO SUBMIT: Please submit a sketch or rendering of your proposed design, explanation of design plans and samples of your previous work to Laszlo@poorrichardsdowntown.com.
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: Monday - Feb 4th ,2019 - 9 AM Artists being considered will be notified on or before Feb 15th.
CHOSEN MURALIST: Once final selection is made, Muralist will meet with Marketing Director and Owners to discuss execution plans and any needed edits. Installation/completion deadline will be April 3rd, 2019.
COMPENSATION: Beginning at $1500.00 and dependent on quantity and breadth of work. Compensation will be discussed with the chosen artist and agreed upon prior to beginning commission.
