The Digital/Mural Lab Digital Artist provides hands on support for art projects and public art commissions, located in a community setting at the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC). The DM/L is a unique research and artistic production facility that combines state-of-the art computer technology with the production of public artworks, curriculum and media. Created in 1996 by UCLA Professor Emeritus Judith F. Baca, the facility focuses its research and teaching on her process of community engagement through the arts developed over a 50-year career as a leader and innovator in the field. The DM/L provides the opportunity to work alongside SPARC artists in a community context toward the production of artworks rooted in social engagement.
We are seeking a Digital Artist who is adept at photoshop for digital composition, digital painting, and following the directions of an Artistic Director in the creation of public artworks. The Digital Artist will work beneath the art director in the creation of digital mural commissions. Digital artists must be available to work in-house in our digital/mural lab facility. Time commitment 5 days a week, and potentially some weekends for full time employment.
The Digital/Mural Lab is equipped with outstanding tools and technology, collaborative spaces, a mural painting studio, and mural fabrication and prototyping equipment–we work in a creative, stimulating environment. The DM/L is an environment that is highly flexible and customizable for creative projects. Ultimately, the projects that are envisioned in the DM/L endeavor to contribute a body of public imagery that speaks of both beauty and social change in our public spaces.
