Urban Canvas provides opportunities for local artists to create public murals within Eugene. The program connects artists and wall owners to provide opportunities to create a more vibrant community.
Urban Canvas is looking for both artists and wall owners who want to participate.
As an ongoing public art program we accept mural proposals and portfolios at any time.
We accept all mural proposals; from the experienced muralist to the visual artist wanting to branch out into mural work. Our role is to serve as the liaison between local artists and local businesses, helping facilitate this new arts experience.
- Fill out the Artist Submission form. You may save your progress and return at a later date by making an account.
- The main contact indicated on your form will be notified if and when your artistic talents match the aesthetic wishes of a wall owner.
- If your work is selected by an interested wall owner, Urban Canvas will serve as the liaison between you and the building owner.
- Urban Canvas reserves the right to not include a submission in the portfolio of artists available to wall owners.
Urban Canvas is looking for walls to feature murals by Eugene’s talented visual artists! If you are a wall owner (or tenant that has permission from the wall owner) looking to add a mural to your building, please fill out a Submit a wall form. We will need to know the location of your wall, approximate dimensions (height and width in feet), and at least one image.
Urban Canvas will pay the artist stipend and wall owners will be responsible to cover the cost of artist supplies and any equipment rentals (if needed). Please review our FAQs for more details on the project.
Only walls that are on the exterior of a building or otherwise publicly accessible for immediate viewing will be considered for this project.
Note: We reserve the right to reject a wall site proposal for any reason, at any time.
