MURALS

 

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? We’ve got two unique opportunities for new public murals.
