Temporary murals that reflect “Who We Are Now” will be installed on construction fences on the exterior wall of FO3 near the statue in the LA5 plaza. These images will represent the current demographic of students, staff, and faculty at CSULB. Through a jury process, the panel will select individual students or student design teams to produce murals. Students, faculty, and staff advisors of cultural groups and Department/Program Chairs/Directors are encouraged to reach out to student organizations for support and participation in the collaboration. Submissions will also be considered for temporary installations at various locations in the City of Long Beach by the Arts Council for Long Beach.
HISTORICAL/CULTURAL BACKGROUND: When CSULB opened in 1949, the demographics of the students, staff, and faculty were almost entirely white. Today, CSULB has one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The designs are intended to create public spaces on campus that make our diversity visible. If you were a potential student or parent visiting our campus and saw a mural that made you think “this school is for me,” what would that mural look like?
Award is $300 per selection and must be a digital file 300 dpi.
