Brief Description

The City of Wauwatosa is excited to announce plans to invest in a new mural arts corridor, beginning with the area along North Avenue near 68th and 69th Streets. This year, the Tourism Commission plans to sponsor up to six murals* in that area. To that end, we are issuing this Call to Artists, in search of proposals for up to six walls which have been chosen for mural installations. Selected artists will have approximately two weeks to complete the work, which will be created during July 15–30, with some room for flexibility. Artists must ensure that their work/personal schedules allow for availability. There is a modest travel budget for out-of-town Artists. Please indicate if you will need travel accommodations in your proposal email. Artists are responsible for acquiring their own materials such as paints and supplies from the budgets provided; however, the organizers of the project will be renting construction lifts and providing ladders and other safety equipment.
