Spokane Arts is seeking individual artists or artist teams to submit proposals for a new mural project to be installed as part of an alleyway revitalization project in the alley on the 100 North block between Wall and Howard streets. This alley is getting a pedestrian-focused update and the mural should contribute to a safe, colorful, vibrant pathway for residents and visitors. Projects should focus on creating a fun, interactive backdrop for photographs and pedestrians. Painting will take place this September 2019. The mural will be installed on brick, covering a space of about 250 sq. feet. Spokane Arts will clean and prime the walls. The artist is responsible for any additional costs beyond the Paint and Supplies stipend, for painting supplies, brushes, additional paint, etc., and renting scaffolding if needed. Deadline for submissions is August 23 at midnight. This project is a partnership between the Spokane City Council, Downtown Spokane Partnership and Spokane Arts.
STIPEND: $1,500 Artist Award; $250 Paint and Supplies
