Having completed the Portland Regional Arts and Culture Council Public Art Mural Program Application, our next step is to meet with the RACC review board on 21 November, 2008 to have our project approved and gain valuable feedback concerning its completion.
We have commissioned local artist Tiago DeJerk and his assistant Justa Williams to complete the final draft of the mural design, train the TVC, and help oversee preparation of the wall and ultimately the physical execution of the mural. We have completed a financial contract for DeJerk's and William's service fee in the amount of $3000 USD.
Throughout the duration of our project we will be requesting donations and pursuing grant money in order to cover the costs of materials, documentation (i.e. photographs), and artists' fees, thus allowing us to successfully complete our project.
Preparation of the wall will begin in April 2009. Execution of the mural will begin in May 2009 and is scheduled for completion by 31 June, 2009.
