The Tarrant Regional Water District is commissioning art on eight large-scale utilitarian structures along the Trinity Trails in Fort Worth. The goal of the project is to create destinations and chance encounters for trail users with art that reflects the beauty of nature, rivers and water.

Deadline for submissions is March 9. Artists should tell why they are interested in the Painting the River project. An artist must:

  • Have the ability to understand a locale’s sense of place and design in a context-sensitive manner.
  • Demonstrate a successful creative, innovative and effective approach in comparable projects.
  • Exhibit proven mastery or skill in large-scale painting.

Artists will be paid $15 per square foot (minimum 200 square feet).
