The University Libraries (UL) invites all UNM student artists to submit an application to design and paint a mural in the Centennial Science and Engineering Library (CSEL) hallway located on lower level 2. Submission applications are due Feb. 24, 2023. The selected artist or team will receive a $2,000 stipend and a supplies budget to paint the mural in the summer of 2023. 

The Mural Committee, comprised of UL Learning Services, CSEL Operations Manager, and a member of the art department, will be tasked with selecting a winner. The theme of the mural should focus on highlighting New Mexico Landscapes, nature, or the outdoors. Students are able to submit individual applications or applications as a team. All applicants and team members must be currently enrolled at UNM. 

Students interested in applying are encouraged to visit the space in-person. A Lobo Card or photo ID is needed to enter the library.
