Project Background: In the summer of 2018, City of Medford staff were asked by the City Manager’s Office to compete in the City’s inaugural Innovation Competition. The goal of the competition was to develop projects that support the advancement of the City Council’s and City Departments’ goals. The winning submittal was the team with members from the Planning Department and Parks and Recreation Department, named “The Placemakers.” The Placemakers’ winning project was to initiate a program for the annual procurement of mural art in Medford, aptly called Medford Murals. The City Manager’s office has allocated $15,000 for the first public art wall mural to be installed at Vogel Plaza in downtown Medford, paying tribute to the history of Medford’s Pear Blossom Festival. The mural is to be completed by June 7, 2019. Preference will be given to Southern Oregon Artists.
