Modern industry is merging with art: Accolade announces a mural design competition for an industrial park in Brno.
Accolade Group has announced a competition for the best Mural Art design intended for an industrial park near Brno Airport. With this project, Accolade continues its efforts to support young talented artists, accentuate the role of modern design and at the same time beautify the environment of industrial parks. The winner will receive a prize of CZK 30,000 and the opportunity to realise their own design together with the well-known street artist ChemiS and turn the shell of the sprinkler house into a work of art.
The Accolade Investment Group has decided to support students from art schools in the Brno region. It has therefore announced a competition for the best Mural Art design - a mural that will decorate one of the sprinkler rooms in the industrial area near Brno Airport. The submitted designs should depict the sustainable future of Brno, as well as Accolade's values. Individuals and groups can apply. The winner will receive a prize of CZK 30,000 and will also be able to realise their design in collaboration with the well-known street artist ChemiS (his works include the popular painting of a crying President Masaryk or The Pilgrimage of Jesus Christ through the Prague Metro), who will participate in the competition as a mentor, consultant, and head of the jury.
Logistics and industrial halls are the ideal canvas for large format paintings and other techniques. The building of this sprinkler room is cylindrical in shape, which will make it an interesting experience. I’m curious to see how the students will handle the designs and I'm already looking forward to the actual realisation with the winning authors," adds ChemiS about the competition.
The winning design will be realised on an area of almost 259 sqm in size. Detailed parameters, including the opportunity to enter the competition, can be found on the project website: Student art competition with Accolade: Mural Art in Brno.
This is not the first Accolade Industrial Art project, where industry and art are intertwined, by the Accolade Group. This long-term project has already linked Polish artists and the industrial park in Bialystok. A painting on one of the retaining walls beautifies the park and highlights Accolade's values. The competition was won by Polish artist Kamila Kurczab with her design ‘Colourful Future for All’.
"We are happy to bring something unique like art to the industrial parks, while supporting up-and-coming talent. Already in Poland we were moved by the number of quality entries to the competition and how difficult it was to choose a winner from the inspiring designs. Organising competitions like this is one of the best decisions we could have made. We are very much looking forward to the result in Brno," comments Dana Kryńska, Marketing and PR Manager at Accolade.
