First we will work with property owners who are interested in having a mural on their building (rear or side facades), then we will put out a request for proposals/designs with the specific space and design requests included. I anticipate sending out an RFP to artists in several weeks. Please click the MAD Mural Grant Program button below for full details on the program.
The Mount Airy Downtown, Inc. Mural Grant Program was approved by the City of Mount Airy on December 6, 2018. We are so excited to launch this new program in Downtown Mount Airy! MAD, Inc. will be commissioning artists to bring pops of color to Mount Airy with new murals and public art projects in the downtown district. Where are thrives, community thrives.
We will be working to create a series of murals as part of an ongoing effort to craft a thriving public art environment that will enhance the downtown district while supporting our economic development strategies and vision for downtown.
This is a solicitation for designs from artists that will result in public murals within the Municipal Service District of Mount Airy (downtown). This is also a solicitation of downtown property/business owners who wish to have an exterior rear or side facade revitalized with a mural.
