Request for Qualifications: Behind the Stage Door 

Partnership with Philadelphia Ballet and Mural Arts Philadelphia
Deadline: November 17, 2021
Contact information:

Mural Arts Philadelphia and the Philadelphia Ballet are partnering on a series of artist-designed installations that will be incorporated into the sets for a Ballet that will be performed in various locations throughout the City in Spring 2022.

The theme of the project and the installations will be “invisible processes,” providing a behind the scenes look at Philadelphia Ballet and highlighting employees and perspectives at the ballet that most audience members don’t know about.

Four artists will be selected to create and execute designs for a series of doors that will be part of the stage set for the performance, which will be staged at various locations throughout the city. The doors are being fabricated by others and will be delivered to the artist and then picked up when the artist’s work is completed (a photograph is included in this packet).. Further instructions / technical details will be provided to the selected artists.

Artists will be paid $3,400, to include all artist fees, materials and supplies. Artists who are based in the Philadelphia area and who work in any visual, two-dimensional medium are encouraged to apply.
