For the fourth year running, the City of Richmond is looking for walls to cover with murals.

The Community Mural Program is open to property owners, community organizations, stratas and non-profits that have highly visible and publicly accessible walls that could host a mural.

“The Community Mural Program continues to add colour and vibrancy to Richmond while supporting local and regional artists,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie in a press release.

The deadline to apply to get a mural done in 2023 is Monday, Sept. 26.

Successful applicants will be notified in early October and be matched with a pre-qualified artist to create the mural.

Jaime Gusto, general manager of the Steveston Harbour Authority, said her organization was “thrilled” to participate in the mural program that resulted this summer in a “large, vibrant, colourful mural” in the Moncton Street breezeway.

“The mural never fails to draw the attention and admiration of anyone who passes by it,” Gusto said in the press release. “Steveston Harbour Authority worked closely with artist Carolyn Wong, who brought our vision to life and we couldn’t be more pleased with the final result.”

Since the launch of the Community Mural Program in 2019, there have been 15 murals completed throughout Richmond.
