(unpaid gig) My Coral Home just leased 9 new apartments in Old City and are going to decorate our new Coral Homes with artwork from local artists. Each apartment has a different theme like “Retro Glam”, “Status Suite” and “Nirvana”. They are looking for 1-2 art students who would like to get creative and get involved in helping us decorate the walls. We would like students who know how to handle paint, cut and paste well, and preferably Adobe suite skills. We have a few painted installations in mind as well as a cut and paste art installation. You would be working along side professional mural and street artists from Philadelphia who we are commissioning for installations in the homes. It is important to us that we partner with up and coming local talent and educational institutions. When they complete the project they will have at least 3 portfolio pieces along with credit to their name and university on our local guidebook. The tricky part is that this project is a bit time sensitive and we would like to get the apartments completely guest ready by June 21st.
