Macadons’ Mural Competition  

 

COMPETITION BRIEF

Macadons is thrilled to be in the final stages of opening their new flagship location in Renton.  As a new member to the thriving business community, they would like to invite local artist to take part in their “Macadons Mural Experience Contest”.  The artist or graphic artis chosen will be awarded $10,000and Macadons’ will cover all hard costs associated with the mural.

On 3rd & Wells, Macadons has a big, beautiful, and inviting wall that lives under the watchful gaze of their rooftop dragon, Erasmus (Macadons’ Chief Dragon Officer).  On August 22nd Macadons gave the community a “sneak peek” of their new location, hosting and “open house” during Renton River Days. Those that stopped by provided their ideas and thoughts surrounding four different art concepts (photo of ideas is last page of this document).

  1) A Friend for Erasmus   2) Filled with Joy    3) Who is Renton    4) Other Ideas

 

 MURAL LOCATION

 Located on the corner of S 3rd and Wells 

 

ELIGIBLITY

We are considering either a painted mural or a “wall-wrap” as the end-product. This will allow for artists of varying experiences and mediums to participate. Whether you consider yourself an amateur, professional, mural painter, or graphic artist we would love to see your submission.  You must be able to execute your final design on the wall.  This could mean painting your mural directly on the wall or working with the company we choose to have your final mural created into a “wall-wrap” that will be affixed to the wall. Submissions may be done by an individual or in teams (maximum ten members). Participants may submit more than one submission as a team and as an individual. While all are welcomed to submit, travel expenses will not be covered.
