Portland Mural Initiative

award
$5,000 Awarded
 

The Portland Mural Initiative will bring contemporary public art to the streets of Portland, ME. We will work primarily with local artists to create temporary and permanent murals, wall paintings, and architectural interventions. Our project places a premium on community engagement. We will host neighborhood meals and artist talks for each individual mural, to introduce the artist to the neighbors and open the lines of communication. This grant will fund our two first murals, a community dinner, and administrative work towards developing the initiative.

Our gallery is open Thursdays-Saturdays! Reserve a free time to visit here.
