Art Wall project

Art Wall project

Are you interested in implementing a mural onto a prominent location in the Art Town Mänttä-Vilppula? The application period for Serlachius Residency’s Art Wall project for the year 2021 runs from 1 February to 1 April 2020.

In addition to the usual applications for the residency, applications will open on 1 February for the four-month long Art Wall project, which will be implemented in collaboration with Art Town Mänttä-Vilppula. 

During the project, a wall painting will be produced for Mänttä-Vilppula at a location to be announced later. The project is scheduled for March-June 2021. A fee of EUR 8,000 will be paid to the artist or group of artists selected for the project. The residency and the town of Mänttä-Vilppula will be responsible for the production costs of the project.

The artist chosen for this project is expected to present the progress of the Art Wall project for the local audience at Aleksanterin linna, the gallery space of the residency. Presenting hir additional own production during this time at the gallery space of the residency is also desirable.

The residency does not charge its guests for accommodation or working premises. Guests are expected, however, to provide a written report of at least one A4-page (c. 2000 characters) about their work at the residency. Images or videos may be attached to the report. Artists chosen for the Art Wall project are responsible for their own travel arrangements as well as their working and living costs during the residency period.

The location, size and other details regarding the mural will be announced on this web site in the near future.

Late applications will not be considered. The chosen artists will be notified of the outcome.
