If you are a wall owner (or tenant that has permission from the wall owner) looking to add a mural to your building, Urban Canvas can help:
Artist roster – Urban Canvas coordinates a roster of 100+ local, visual artists interested in painting a mural. Skills range from those wishing to complete their first mural to the most experienced artists in our community.
Unfortunately, there is not a one-size-fits-all answer. Mural costs include the artist stipend (often $15-25 per square foot), supplies (e.g., paint, brushes, anti-graffiti coating, etc.), permits, and the rental of lifts or scaffolding (if needed depending on the site) and is often heavily influenced by the size of the wall.
Mural commissioners often provide themes, suggestions or certain content to include in a mural to guide the artist when they create a mural proposal. It is important to remember that although artists should be given any expectations up front, artists are typically more interested in projects that allow some level of creative freedom—if you are interested in an artist’s previous work, trust the artist and the process. Designs must be approved and agreed upon by all parties before any work can begin. Designs that include subjects of hateful imagery, pornography or illegal/illicit activities are not acceptable.
