Brief Description

The city of Thornton, in collaboration with the Thornton Arts, Sciences and Humanities Council (TASHCO), is seeking to commission original public art. This project will commission a graffiti-style mural that will have a strong visual impact, engage visitors (specifically, youth), and push Thornton into a contemporary setting. The final design should include dynamic style elements and visual ques that speak to the community and add beauty to inspire creativity and local pride.

Artists will be challenged to explore contemporary materials, themes, and/or utilize interdisciplinary practices to meet the scope of the project. This project encourages artists to go beyond the use of static imagery to weave a dynamic, intersectional story of art, culture, and influence to inspire Thornton residents.
