Community Foundation for Southern Arizona – CF Campus Mural
Budget for Artwork: $25,000
Application Deadline: November 8, 2020
The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona (CFSA), a local public charity, is seeking a collaborative artist team to create a mural on a tower of their Community Foundation Campus (CF Campus) headquarters.
The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona’s purpose is to create a more equitable and vibrant community for all. CFSA serves as a vital link between philanthropy and the needs in our community throughout Southern Arizona.
The impact we make is a collective one, with funds being held by individuals, families, and businesses with unique interests, ideas, and passions to make our region a better place. Like Southern Arizona itself, our funds are diverse, with our collective work touching every aspect of daily life, including animal welfare, arts and culture, community development, education, environment, health and human services, and so much more.
CFSA is headquartered at the CF Campus, a unique nonprofit coworking and event space that was developed for the community by CFSA to be a central place for our community to convene and collaborate. The Campus serves as a physical embodiment of CFSA’s purpose and values.
The mural must represent the values of the CFSA (Collaborative, Innovative, and Effective Leadership; Integrity; Stewardship and Service; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; and Fun) and the overall diverse and vibrant communities in Southern Arizona.
As a community-based organization, the collaborative nature of the project is highly valued, and preference will be given to diverse artist teams that represent our local community, and include local artists and Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) artists.
