Design Core x Gucci Changemakers, is launching an open call to select a designer to create an original illustration, painting or drawing that will be placed on the Siren art wall located on the side of the Siren Hotel, 1509 Broadway St, Detroit, MI 48226. 

We invite designers to apply and are looking for ideas that push the boundaries of creativity. The selected designer will receive a stipend for the creation of the artwork exclusively. The final design will be applied to the wall by an approved hand paint mural company. The open call will run April 27th through May 31st at 11:59 PM.

Throughout the process, the designer will receive technical assistance and support from Design Core and a curated list of industry mentors to answer questions, provide advice, and encourage successful implementation.  

The participating designer will benefit by having the opportunity to: 1) showcase their talent to Detroit’s Month of Design regional audience of over 50,000 people, 2) reach a new audience of buyers, 3) obtain guidance and support from industry mentors and business networks, and 4) connect with Detroit’s growing creative community. 

Submissions are open to designers living and/or working in Detroit, Hamtramck or Highland Park, with an emphasis on Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC).
