Europe’s best street art artists are invited to make the city walls of Veszprém colourful and spectacular. Veszprém-Balaton 2023 European Capital of Culture is calling for artists to reimagine several municipal spaces in prominent locations in the city that are well known by the local community and easily spotted by visitors.
Ten locations throughout the city will be made available to the winning entries. For example, street art artists will have the opportunity to redesign the 61 m x 7.5 m surface of the underpass of the Veszprém Arena; the drivers’ rest area of the city’s most visible bus turnaround; retaining walls of the recently renovated pedestrian and bicycle underpass under the Southern Ring Road; the firewall of the Veszprém House of Arts office building; and even a city bus that will carry its street art sticker for years to come.
Budgets are 6,000,000 HUF (~15,750 EUR) for large surfaces, 500,000 HUF (~1300 EUR) for small surfaces, and 5,000,000 HUF (~13,000 EUR) for combined surfaces (collaboration with V-Bus/ Veszprém Bus Public Transport Company). Works will be created/installed on-site between 1 May and 30 September 2023.
