As Downtown Wellen nears completion, local artists have the unique opportunity to contribute their creative talents. Wellen Park and the Arts and Cultural Alliance of Sarasota County have announced the Downtown Wellen Mural Project: a competition for local and regional artists to create large scale murals in Downtown Wellen, the central hub and social gathering destination nearing completion in Wellen Park. Wellen Park will feature three different mural sites throughout Downtown Wellen. The first mural will be prominently located along Wellen Park Boulevard, the main roadway into Downtown Wellen. The second and third murals will be located side-by-side on the building adjacent to Oak & Stone restaurant, and The Yard, Wellen Park’s food park and entertainment hub with retrofitted shipping containers, an open-air dining courtyard and a recreational area for all ages to enjoy. Local artists are invited to submit general concept ideas that follow predetermined themes. Ideas for Mural One should represent Wellen Park’s brand pillar, “Hub of Heartfelt Connections,” and be reflective of nature, as well as interactive. Murals Two and Three should focus on Wellen Park’s other two brand pillars, “Home to Fun Loving Lifestyles” and “Channeling the Waterside Vibe.” Interested artists can learn more about the project and apply online at sarasotaarts.org/downtown-wellen-mural-project. Interest forms submissions will be accepted until 5 p.m., Friday, Oct. 7, and must include proposed mural sketch ideas and concepts, as well as samples of previously completed murals. For more information, email communications@sarasotaarts.org. To learn more about living at Wellen Park, call 941-960-7805, go to wellenpark.com or visit the Welcome Center at 12275 Mercado Drive in Venice, Fla. The Welcome Center is open daily 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
