Dream of having your own mural grace the walls of a Brooklyn hotspot?
Well, Alberto Baudo, owner of Fabbrica Restaurant & Bar, has launched a competition for dynamic New York-based artists to take over the walls of his waterfront restaurant in Williamsburg.
The competition runs through June 15, 2014, at which point a panel of judges will review all submissions and select a winner. Artists have complete freedom to express their creativity, yet Fabbrica suggests they consider the Italian identity of the restaurant as well as its location in industrial Brooklyn. The winning artist’s piece will be digitally printed on a vinyl adhesive, spanning nine feet tall by 45 feet wide, and applied to the walls of the restaurant where it will be exhibited for six months. During the final week of submissions, the restaurant will also take to social media, asking its diners to vote from a display of all submitted pieces thus far.Competition judges include Gabriele Romagnoli, editor at large forÂ Vanity Fair Italy;Â Hospitality DesignÂ magazine’s Stacy Shoemaker Rauen; architect Aldo Andreoli of AA Studio; singer and fashion designer Misfit Dior; photographer David Jacquot; and architect Gilles Depardon of Ogawa Depardon Architects.
Submissions should be in digital format as a high-resolution file and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.orgÂ by June 15th at 11:59 p.m. EST.
