Artist Call for Mobile Mural Project in Brooksville

By Florida's Original NatureCoaster™ Posted on July 7, 2022

Brooksville Main Street and the Hernando County Arts Council invites artists to create an original art piece for our Mobile Mural Program. This is the fifth round of Mobile Murals! The Mobile Murals and the artists behind them will be a part of Brooksville Main Street’s inaugural Multicultural Festival done in partnership with Hernando Hispanic Heritage.

Brooksville’s Fall 2022 Mobile Mural Project Theme: Weeki Wachee Wonders

Hernando County is home to many natural treasures. The preserves and parks around our county have provided backdrops to many nostalgic films and have served as some of Florida’s oldest attractions for decades. Most notably, Weeki Wachee State Park. This year, we celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the park.

Weeki Wachee was named by the Seminole Indians. It means, “Little Spring,” or Winding River.” The deep spring and incredible river are home to wondrous aquatic creatures and as we all know… Mermaids!

We invite artists to join us in paying tribute to the impact that Weeki Wachee State Park has had on our community over the years. Whether you choose to use the unforgettable turquoise color scheme of the springs, pay homage to your favorite mermaid, or paint a photo from your childhood memories at the park, we cannot wait to see your designs!

Design Requirements

Artists are required to submit a portfolio and description of the intended design. This will ensure that we avoid duplicate subject matter. Sketches/digital mock-ups are recommended, but not required. Our team does appreciate rough sketches of your design, but it is not a requirement. If you do not submit a sketch, please make sure your portfolio is strong and has a similar subject matter to your proposed design. Designs must be family-friendly. Nudity or depictions of drug use will not be accepted.
