About the Downtown Mural Project
The 6h Annual Downtown Mural Project encourages local artists of all ages to create 2'x4' murals to be displayed outdoors on downtown buildings for about 11 months beginning in September.
2018 Mural Submissions
This year, canvases are available beginning June 20 and completed entries are due by August 1. Limit one mural per family, murals available while supplies last.
The new murals will be installed for the First Friday in September, and winners will be announced on Facebook on October 19. Winners will include People's Choice Awards and Judge's Choice Awards. Don't forget to vote for your favorites by reacting with a "Like" or "Love" in the Facebook galleries.
Guidelines for Murals:
Must be the artist’s individual work in design and execution.
Advertisements and business names are prohibited.
Must be able to withstand outdoor display for 11 months. Two to three coats of spar varnish or other exterior grade finish are required.
Content must be suitable for all ages. Committee has right to determine the suitability of work.
Must use a new canvas provided by the Chamber. Reused murals degrade more quickly. If your mural becomes damaged or degraded, it may be removed. Provided canvases are designed to fit the display areas, whereas homemade canvases or modified canvases may be unable to be displayed.
Your name and age must be written on the back of your entry. Please also denote on the back with an arrow which side is the top of your mural.
