Historic Denton Inc Call For Artists
August 1, 2020 @ 8:00 am - September 1, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
CREATE VISUAL IDENTITIES FOR DENTON NEIGHBORHOODS:
DESIGN AN IMAGE FOR SIGN TOPPERS
Historic Denton, Inc., a local non-profit organization, is in a continuing process of researching all of Denton’s historic neighborhoods and is working with the City of Denton in the creation of street sign toppers.
Visual Arts Society of Texas is working with Historic Denton, Inc. to select artists and aid in the facilitation of the artistic designs for the street sign toppers.
CALL TO ARTISTS:
Denton lacks named neighborhoods and the unity of knowing about the historical background of its neighborhoods. Example:
- How do you describe the neighborhood where you live, or tell people about your neighborhood?
- Do you reference street names or the name of your neighborhood?
- Is there a clear definition of each neighborhood where you live?
Neighborhoods do have names but without use, they have been forgotten.
Artists are invited to submit designs to create a visual identity and which represent each neighborhood in Denton. The designs will be used as sign toppers that will be posted on top of each traffic street sign at the corners of the streets in the neighborhoods.
