Call for Artists

We are looking for muralists to participate in our 2022 Putnam County Mural Fest!

Although COVID-19 hampered many of our plans for following up on the original mural in 2020 and 2021, the Putnam County Mural Project will hold a mural festival in fall 2022. The Mural Festival will continue to engage the public in the mural process, with plans to install FIVE new murals across Putnam County. 

 

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.

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 2022 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. The timeline below outlines important due dates throughout the process for selected artists.
