Call for Artist Submissions for the K Street Farm Sign

March 22, 2017

DC Greens calls for artists to submit designs for a new K Street Farm sign. The K Street Farm is a 3⁄4 acre nonprofit farm located in downtown Washington, DC. The farm is home to 5,000 square feet of growing space, two honey bee hives, four egg-laying chickens, a variety of fruits trees, and many perennial herbs and flowers. The Farm welcomes community members and volunteers on a regular basis and is a professional development training site for our network of school garden coordinators from all eight wards of the city.

Sign text​: K Street Farm (large font)
Cultivated by DC Greens (small font)

Specifications​: The sign size will be roughly 4’x12’ with a small bottom addition that can be hung and removed from the main sign. This is an exterior sign to be mounted on a chainlink fence. Mounting responsibilities do not fall entirely on the artist, farm staff will be available to assist. Below find examples of current aesthetic of the K Street Farm.

Budget​: $1,500 (including artist time and materials)

Preferred completion date​: May 1, 2017

To apply​: Please submit 1 proposed design and material along with portfolio of work to ​[email protected]​.
