Porch at the Walnut Creek Wetland Park

Artist Call: Mud Day

Raleigh Arts

Raleigh Arts is seeking an artist that will work with community members, volunteers, and city staff to pull trash out of Walnut Creek and then create an artwork installation out of the collected trash. Trash collection will occur on April 4 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The artist will be present to explain which types of items in the trash sweep will be useful in creating the artwork. They will work with helpers to clean found materials and then organize found materials for storage at Wetland Center (unless the artist prefers to keep the materials at their studio).

More information about the Mud Day artist call.


All materials must be received no later than Monday, March 2, 2020, at 10 a.m. Incomplete or late submissions will not be considered.


The budget is $2,500 inclusive of all expenses including community engagement, concept and final designs, materials, proposals, travel, taxes, and fees.


Fill out the online application.
