The City of Fremont is currently accepting proposals from artists to install a temporary mural at the temporary Housing Navigation Center (HNC). Fremont’s HNC is a response to the community’s growing homeless crisis and will provide a clean, safe, calm, and flexible environment that allows homeless persons to rebuild their lives and intensely focus on finding stable permanent housing. The HNC will accommodate 45 homeless community members who can stay up to 6-months while they receive rigorous case management and support in securing housing.
The mural installed at the HNC will be positive in nature, inspire hope, and reflect the participants’ journey out of homelessness. The HNC has limited public access, and the intention of the mural is to create a welcoming environment for participants. The artist is encouraged to include community participation in the creation of the mural through population specific focus groups or community volunteering for painting the mural. The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2020. Artists interested in applying can visit the navigation center art webpage for complete details.
