Main Street Wooster, in collaboration with Wayne Center for the Arts, announces applications for the 2020 Streetscape Art Tile Project, creating local art to upgrade the SE and SW quadrants of the Wooster downtown square. We're thrilled to partner on this opportunity for local artists! No application fee is necessary; multiple submissions are encouraged. Art Tiles will be installed on two seat walls (16" wide, 18" high, varying length) that will be permanently installed in downtown Wooster. Main Street Wooster and Wayne Center for the Arts will collaborate on an exhibit of the winning submissions; more details coming soon. 

Total Art Tile spaces available: 81

Theme: Life in Wooster

  • Broad concept – a piece qualifies as long as people won’t scratch their heads and say “What on earth does this have to do with Wooster?”
  • Examples: Native plants, native animals, local sports teams, industry, civic groups, arts, culture, landmarks.

Mood: Uplifting

  • Examples: beautiful imagery, positive family scene, cooperative effort

Color palette: Dominant earth tones, no primary, neon, or fluorescent colors. Each piece or series of pieces will be printed with a ½” sepia border to visually separate it from adjacent art.

Format: digital art 300 dpi at actual size saved as eps/jpg/tif OR two-dimensional and capable of being transported off-site to be scanned

Finished size: 11 13/16" x 11 13/16"

Deadline for submissions: 4/6/20 at 5:00 p.m. Multiple submissions encouraged.
