Eligibility:

Mural Project Edmonds is a subcommittee of Art Walk Edmonds (a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization) seeking qualified muralists or muralist teams to create outdoor murals for multiple walls in downtown Edmonds, Washington. Two new mural installations are planned for the summer of 2019. Exact size and location of murals is currently in final selection phase.

Project implementation: Two new mural installations have been identified for the summer of 2019. Completion deadline is September 30, 2019.

Budget: All-inclusive budget is $5,000 - $10,000 per mural, to be determined based on project size and complexity.

Muralists must create the artwork within the all-inclusive budget. This budget includes all costs associated with the design, fabrication, delivery and installation of the artwork. The muralist’s fee includes the costs of design, materials, fabrication, travel, liability insurance, tax and time spent in progress meetings and installation verification. 

Mural Project Edmonds seeks qualified muralists or muralist teams to design and create exterior murals for a series of locations in downtown Edmonds. The artwork will enhance the overall character and atmosphere of the downtown core and support a welcoming environment.
