Call for Artists

We are looking for muralists to participate in our 2024 Putnam County Mural Fest!

The Putnam County Mural Project team is excited to announce the 2024 Putnam County Mural Festival, which will take place this September. Since 2019, our team has commissioned nine murals across our community in Putnam County, IN. This year's festival will be our second, with the first having been held in 2022. Through this work, we are inviting mural artists to join us in continuing to engage the public in meaningful mural-making, with plans to install seven new murals across Putnam County. 


We are more than just a public art organization. We believe murals have the ability to transform communities by celebrating heritage, creating civic pride, and enriching lives through participatory art-making. This is best accomplished when murals are used to activate spaces in areas that are otherwise overlooked, and the community is engaged in thoughtful ways. Interested applicants are highly encouraged to review our previous work, mission statement, and community goals before applying. 

Chosen artists will be asked to work in tandem with the PCMP team in order to produce work that is reflective of and responsive to the Putnam County community. Fall 2024 Putnam County Mural Festival chosen artists will be required to sign a contract that outlines the needs and responsibilities of their work leading up to and throughout the festival itself.
