Mini Murals for Micro Gallery to Travel to Museum and London
The Angelica Kauffman Gallery is a miniature 1:12 (dollhouse scale) gallery that serves emerging artists and charges no fees or commissions. While artwork inside the gallery must be original, “mini murals” can be prints. A mini mural is a low tack wall graphic, a vinyl cling that is removable. You can have a print made of existing artwork.
In 2024, the box galleries will be traveling to a museum and to London for in person shows in full size venues, gallery in London and a museum stateside.
This call is for mini murals, printed as low tack wall graphics, to go on the outside of the box galleries. Your mini mural can be for sale, and if not sold, it will be returned to you.
Please read the following very carefully.
Getting the scale right is essential. The miniature box galleries are mostly 12″ H x 16″ W x 12″ D, meaning the exterior side walls, where the mini murals will go, are 12″ x 12″ . For the illusion to work, of the artwork being painted on, it works best if the artwork is no larger than 10″ x 10″ (does not have to be square). Artwork should not be smaller than 6″ x 6″. The work should be scaled appropriately, think about a PlayMobil figure standing next to the wall and looking at your work. Does it read as a mural?
It looks best if the low tack wall graphic is die-cut.
Sticker Mule is a reliable source for die-cut low tack wall graphics. It can sometimes work to have the mini mural be a rectangle/not be die-cut, but it depends on the design. I can send you a discount link for Sticker Mule, which, full disclosure, will give me a credit toward future orders if you use the link. You are free to use any printing company you like that can do vinyl, removable, low tack wall graphics.
Mini murals must be family friendly. Gallerist reserves the right to not show any work.
Because it will cost you money to have this mini mural printed, use the google form to share an image (and give me your contact info. social media tags, statements, etc.) Get the go-ahead before having your mini-mural printed.
Commissions and Shipping
The Angelica Kauffman Gallery does not charge commissions, but the full size venues that host us do charge reasonable commissions on sales. The gallery is entirely self-funded and because of that, we ask artists to pay their own shipping, (unless incarcerated). If we get a grant, we’ll pay shipping. If that happens, we’ll let you know.
We like to make this easy – you can enclose a way to ship your item back to you, or you can use Venmo or Ko-Fi to pay postage when it’s time to ship your mini mural back to you.
Artwork must be received by February 1, 2024. Sooner is also acceptable. Submit on the google form by October 15, 2023 or sooner.
Wait, show me a mini mural!
