Whole Foods searching for artists to create murals

Published On: Sep 12 2012 02:29:16 AM EDT

Whole Foods is putting out a call for artists to create four murals at its new Detroit store in Midtown.

The high-end grocer plans to put up four murals on the exterior of the building on Mack Avenue.

The murals would be facing John R and will measure 23 feet wide and 14 feet tall. The murals will be attached to the building and Whole Foods is looking for just about any and all ideas.

Whole Foods is willing to pay $1,000 in material costs and $7,500 for each of the four murals.  Individual artists could win one or multiple or all four commissions for the murals.  The funding for the murals is being provided by Midtown Detroit Inc. For information on the mural project, send an email to detroitmural@wholefoods.com. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 15.

Whole Foods is building a grocery store on the north side of Mack, just east of Woodward. Construction is underway and work is largely finished on the structure's parking lot. The store is set to open in late May or early June of next year.
