City of Richmond launches new Mural Program

The City of Richmond’s Public Art Program will launch a new community mural project to bring artists, students, community groups and local businesses together and brighten up public spaces.

“Mural projects also offer tremendous opportunities for [everyone] to work together to create [a] welcoming and beautiful environments that foster civic pride and appreciation of art and culture,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie.

Property owners can contribute to the program by providing a wall that can be easily seen in public.

Unfortunately, the city said private single family residences and private properties are not eligible to participate.

Property owners, such as businesses, will be paired with a pre-qualified artist, by the city, to start the mural project. 

Although the city is managing and funding the project, property owners need a proof of permission and access to the wall and must agree to maintaining the wall for at least five years.

Deadline for applications is Wednesday, July 31.
