Artists and teams of artists are invited to submit their qualifications to produce artwork for a mural that will be placed on an exterior wall of the City Club of Cleveland Building, located at 850 Euclid Avenue in downtown Cleveland. The mural artwork will be reproduced digitally on the exterior of the building. Because of this, artists from a wide range of disciplines are encouraged to submit. Previous mural experience is not required. The City Club of Cleveland, now in its 105th year of existence as one of the nation’s great free speech forums, will commission an artist to design a mural for placement on the west-facing exterior wall of its building. The mural, the purposes of which will be to celebrate the principle of free speech and serve as a wayfinding device to the City Club’s second-floor location, will be inspired by an existing City Club mural, Elmer Brown’s “Freedom of Speech,” which graces a wall of the City Club’s main interior gathering place, the Forum. Brown’s artwork, completed in 1942, represents the breaking of ties to oppression and exclusion, while compelling viewers and attendees at Forum events to ask questions, avoid making assumptions, and keep learning.

Artists who are invited to produce designs will be expected to produce designs for two possible locations on the building wall, as illustrated below. Additionally, a scaled-down version of the mural will be required for indoor display. The artist whose work is chosen for implementation will be responsible for producing the artwork in a scalable electronic format that can be digitally reproduced for installation.
