Adair Park Today, Inc. is seeking an artist/artists to assist in the painting of intersections in the Adair Park community for the purposes of beautification, traffic calming, and community building.
Project entails the design of 2 stencils to be used by the neighborhood for painting intersections. One stencil shall approximate the Adair Park flag (see below) and the other stencil shall be of the artist’s design. Due to the paint that must be used, design is limited to the colors white, yellow, blue, green, black, red, and brick red. Artist will then work with children and adults of the community to paint the intersections.
The following criteria shall be used to evaluate submissions:
1) Residency (35%) – Preference will be given in decreasing order to those who live/work in Adair Park, NPU-V,X, T, or S, Southwest Atlanta, and Atlanta.
2) Experience (35%) – Quality of artist’s portfolio and ability to succeed at this project
3) Cost (30%) – Consulting fee only, as supplies will be purchased separately by the neighborhood association.
After completion of the project, both stencils shall remain the property of Adair Park Today, Inc. to be used exclusively for the painting of intersections within the boundaries of Adair Park as recognized by NPU-V.
Submission and Deadline
Please submit by February 20th, proposal including 3 examples of your work, 2 references, and consulting fee.

The November meeting for Adair Park Today is tonight at 7pm at the Kroc Center. Lots on tap to discuss. LaShawn Hoffman from PCIA is coming to talk about the potential redistricting of City Council and what that means to us. Also, we need to discuss our December Meeting/Holiday Party, the November Cleanup, our November Meet-N-Greet and nominations for 2012 officers. Last, Fragments Ministry is coming to ask for a letter of support. Please come out and bring a neighbor with you!
If you have still not stopped by the Kroc Center Farmer’s Market on a Saturday, what are you waiting for? Fresh produce brought just across Metropolitan from our neighborhood and sold at reasonable prices? Sign me up!
This program endeavors to not only provide low cost fresh produce to the surrounding neighborhoods, but they also employ some teens in the area so they can learn about business.
We hope to see you there loading up on a Saturday soon!
