Arts on Waters

Arts on Waters is a critical part of the City’s multi-pronged approach to revitalizing Waters Avenue. From new sidewalks, street trees, and pedestrian lighting to investment incentives and improved zoning, the City has undertaken a wide range of corridor revitalization initiatives along this key target corridor. By leveraging proven creative placemaking tools, Arts on Waters aims to build on Savannah’s artistic energy and attract residents of all backgrounds to celebrate the surrounding communities.

The City of Savannah’s Office of Business Opportunity and Cultural Resources Department requests proposals from artists and/or artist teams, based within Savannah city limits, to commission artworks that will contribute to the creative placemaking project on Waters Ave. Proposals should be representative of the community and inspire, engage, and celebrate the surrounding neighborhood and its residents.

Note: The mural submission deadline has been extended to November 6th. Proposals submitted during the original call for artists will be considered and do not need to be re-submitted.

  • 80' x 20' Mural 

The total budget for the mural project is $8,000 and includes materials and an artist stipend for the selected mural artist.
