The Richland Arts Commission is soliciting artists from Benton, Franklin, and Walla Walla Counties to submit digital artwork for a soon-to-be-installed Fitness Court in Howard Amon Park. The multipurpose training wall will be the backbone of the fitness court, measuring 32’ long x 7’ high.
The mural will be printed digitally on high-quality anti-graffiti laminated vinyl and be adhered to the backside of the training wall. The front side will also feature 4 small zones of artwork, which will frame the court’s instructions of use.
Artwork should promote positive imagery and represent local or regional values unique to our area. The goal is to share fun, vibrant, innovative artwork that tells the story of wellness and fitness in our community.
The Fitness Court is designed to provide a full-body workout in only seven minutes. The features of the court have you rotating through seven zones to provide circuit-type training. It will be accessible to adults of all ages and abilities. You can also scan the wall for resources, workouts, programs, and challenges, all while enjoying the park and the beautiful Columbia River.
Submissions are due by the end of business on Monday, May 1, 2023. The selected artist will be paid $5,000 for the completed design upon the final installation of the artwork by the National Fitness Campaign.
