Spokane Arts Accepting Proposals for Downtown Spokane Murals

Spokane Arts is now accepting proposals to create four different murals in downtown Spokane. The murals will be located at the following railroad underpasses: Wall St., Howard St., Maple St. and Browne St.

Currently, the railroad underpasses are misused and not visually appealing. The purpose of this project is to brighten the underpasses and to showcase Spokane's art scene.

"These murals would not only add a slice of Spokane culture to the urban spaces, they would also serve as community art pieces" said Shannon Halberstadt, Executive Director of Spokane Arts.

The call for proposals is open to Spokane-area artists or artist teams, with priority given to those with roots in the Inland Northwest. Materials will be provided for the selected artists, as well as a stipend.

"Spokane has such a vibrant arts community that only continues to grow" said Halberstadt. "We hope to receive proposals that have a true vision to revitalize the underpasses, resulting in creative pieces that people will go out of their way to see when they're in downtown Spokane."

For an application, visit www.callforentry.org or contact Austin Stiegemeier at austin@spokanearts.org or 509-321-9614. The deadline is April 8.
