One South Euclid seeks proposals from experienced artists for the design and execution of a public art mural on an exterior wall of a privately owned building at 4202 Mayfield
Road in South Euclid.
Date issued: April 7, 2023
Due Date: May 12, 2023
The proposed mural will be on the building of the Johns-Carabelli Company, an industry leader in memorials, monuments and other stonework for 140 years. Some of their best known works are the Haserot Angel, the John D. Rockefeller Obelisk, the Wade Chapel, the Charles F. Brush Monument, and the gravestones of rock icons Alan Freed and Michael Stanley, all of which can be found at Lakeview Cemetary. This mural should focus on celebrating South Euclid and its historic contributions and connection to the greater Cleveland area.
The wall measures 50’ wide by 24’ tall and faces west. The artwork may take up to nearly the full scale of the wall, with the exception being the wrap around bricks of the front facade.
The Johns-Carabelli Company building, located at 4202 Mayfield Road between Warrensville Center Road and South Belvoir Boulevard, is a primary east-west commercial corridor in the City of South Euclid. The proposed mural will be on the western wall, highly visible to cars, bikes, and pedestrians heading east on Mayfield Road.
Once a muralist is selected they will be paid $500 to create a more detailed design of the proposed mural for final review. The muralist will be paid up to $4,500 upon successful and timely completion of the mural.
In addition, One South Euclid will reimburse eligible costs that include, but are not limited to, artist fees, materials, installation labor, and other costs related to the mural. Cleaning and priming of the exterior wall will be completed prior to the installation and should not be incorporated in the muralist’s itemized budget.
