Call for artists: Human Rights Initiative of North Texas

Through Friday, January 7, 2011
Presented by Human Rights Initiative of North Texas

Human Rights Initiative of North Texas (HRI) is celebrating our new home in Dallas' Wilson Historic District and we want to honor the 55 foundations that have supported and nurtured our work during our first 10 years.

We're looking for an innovative, semi-permanent design to showcase the listing of 55 foundations, and to allow room to add more foundations at a later date. This design would fit on a wall that measures 12 feet long and 12 feet tall. The design should not extend more than one inch from the wall and would be a design that could be removed from the wall when HRI moves its office. The artists/architects will own the copyright of their work.

This competition is open to all artists over age 18. All work entered must be original in concept/execution. Medium is limited to drawings or paintings of the wall design and our budget is limited to $5,000 for materials. Please submit your design on a 24x36 mounted board (that will not be returned).
If your design is selected, you will have the option of participating in its construction. You will be our guest of honor at the unveiling of the wall event. Your name and bio will also be included in our event news release. New, emerging, and established artists are all encouraged to enter.

Human Rights Initiative of North Texas (HRI) is the only agency in North Texas that provides free legal representation to individuals who have suffered human rights abuses in their homelands and have credible asylum cases. HRI has also been able to respond to other legal needs when traditional refugee services have not: in cases of human trafficking and violence against indigent immigrant women and children. For more information on HRI, go to

The competition is open through Friday, January 7. Entries should be delivered to the HRI office at 2801 Swiss Avenue at Liberty, 75204 between 9a.m.and 5 p.m. on weekdays. For questions on the competition call Pat Melton at
