The City of Richmond's Public Art Program is making a call for empty public wall spaces for its community mural project.
"The Community Mural Program turns plain walls into bright, colourful, eye catching artworks for everyone to share and enjoy,” says Mayor Malcolm Brodie.
“The large and unique murals create an open air art gallery that animates our neighbourhoods and streetscapes.”
Property owners including businesses, stratas, community centres and non-profit groups can contribute to the program by giving the city permission and access to an empty wall.
Private single family residences and properties are not eligible to participate.
Successful applicants will be paired with a pre-qualified artist to start the mural.
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 keep and maintain the wall for at least five years.
Deadline for applications is Monday, Nov. 16.
