The mural culture in Spokane has been active for decades but the City of Spokane and Spokane Arts have recently made a commitment to revitalize and reimagine murals in the downtown gateways as a placemaking measure and as a way to activate underutilized areas which also see a large volume of pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
Spokane Arts has two new mural opportunities available for artists in our city right now!
Do you want to create a new mural? Do you have a big vision for your artwork that you want to share with the entire city? Click the orange links below to get all the details on locations, artist stipends, and submission guidelines for these projects and submit your proposal! Deadline for submissions is August 17 at midnight. Please submit your expected timeline, materials you plan to use, and up to ten images of previous work. If you'd like to submit a concept sketch or narrative of the proposed work, the jury will consider those along with your portfolio images. Open to Spokane-area artists or artist teams. Please do not apply if you do not live in this region. Exterior latex paint or high-quality spray paint is required for these locations. Artist/artist teams must be available for mural painting in September to be eligible. These mural locations are adjacent but separate mural projects. Artists and artist teams may apply for both. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
