ATTENTION ARTISTS! New Season was just awarded a Local Impact Grant to create 4 murals in Esparto.
The "Capay Valley and its People Mural Project" will provide an opportunity for artists in Yolo County to have their work demonstrated to a larger audience through building side murals. The project will celebrate these artists abilities by a permanent display on four commercial buildings in rural Northern California. New Season is actively working with other nonprofits such as Capay Valley Vision, the Capay Valley Historical Society, California College of the Arts, and Yolo County Arts Council as community partners in this project.
Potential artists are invited to an orientation on the Capay Valley and its People. There will be two(2) technical workshops on outdoor murals, one for artists and one for the community; two(2) orientations on the "Capay Valley and its People" and four(4) building sites with full murals.
A panel of community experts on the people and cultures of the Capay Valley will include representation from the Capay Valley Historical Society, Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, local farmers and farm workers, non-profit organizations, Esparto Unified School District and Yolo County artists not submitting art for murals. Eduardo Pineda of the CA.College of the Arts is the technical and artistic advisor.
Submission forms for artists should be sent through the arts community and local community via internet following an orientation(s) to the history and culture of the peoples of the Capay Valley. Training for chosen submissions on mural work will be announced by email to the artists.
All final artistic decisions or ties are determined by Mr. Pineda. All decisions on which building placement for each murals is by New Season.
Mural Creation will be done September through December weather permitting. A celebration event will be hosted by New Season involving the unveiling, artist and community recognition and press event!
