Ever wanted to have your artwork display at one of the premiere baseball parks in the country?
Now’s your chance. Local artists are invited to submit their ideas for a Ballpark Mural Concept to have their creation on display above Ashburn Alley at Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia during the 2024 Major League Baseball season.
The announcement was made by SEI and the Philadelphia Phillies and submissions will be collected until Jan. 26.
The organizations invite local mural artists to submit concepts that “tell Philadelphia’s story through art, highlighting the region’s unique culture, bold spirit, Phillies fandom, and SEI’s mission to build brave futures SM through the power of connection.”
A full list of details can be found at https://www.seic.com/mural-citizens-bank-park.
“Art has been a cultural staple in SEI’s offices to help spur creativity in our roles and work, and we welcome the opportunity to feature local artists in our work environment to fuel our daily inspiration,” said Ryan Hicke, SEI’s CEO. “The Phillies and SEI share a deep commitment to building the connections that make an impact. Creative vision can push boundaries and drive innovation across communities and industries, and we’re proud to partner with the Phillies to build brave futures for the region.”
The winning artist will paint and feature their mural at Citizens Bank Park, be highlighted in promotional activities that share about their background, experience and inspiration behind the mural, and participate in a mural unveiling event at Citizens Bank Park and be recognized on the field before a Phillies home game.
The contest’s first and second runners-up will be invited to attend a Phillies home game, and all contest submissions will be considered for display at SEI’s corporate headquarters in Oaks.
After the season, SEI and the Phillies will make a contribution to a local nonprofit from its co-branded charitable fund, and SEI will move the mural from Citizens Bank Park to its corporate headquarters in Oaks for display.
“This is a terrific opportunity for an artist to showcase their passion for our great city and hometown team,” said Jackie Cuddeback, Senior Vice President of Partnership Sales and Corporate Marketing at the Phillies. “We’re excited to team up with SEI for this unique contest and can’t wait to unveil the new mural to our fans during the 2024 season.”
