The city of Decatur is asking for artists to submit qualifications for the Decatur MARTA overpass mural project.

Last year, the city received a $15,000 grant to paint a mural on the MARTA overpass at West Trinity and Atlanta Avenue.

A public input session was held in December to get feedback from the community as to what should go in the space.

The Decatur Arts Alliance is now looking for professional artists. The Alliance said, “This request for qualifications is an open call to experienced mural artists regionally and nationally. According to the terms of the grant, the artist will be paid $7,500 for the work.”

The deadline for submissions is Feb. 16. A steering committee will review submissions and choose the artist in March. The mural will be developed over the summer, according to the alliance timeline. It’s expected to be unveiled in October.
