Fresh Paint Initiative

Urban Canvas is looking for wall owners (or business owners with permission from building owners) interested in having their exterior wall painted for the new Fresh Paint Initiative. The intention of this initiative is to elevate emerging muralists by giving them their own wall to use as a canvas for two years, and for the artist to continually evolve the work over the entire period. 


How it works

You provide the wall, we provide the paint, coordination and artist stipend, and an Urban Canvas artist from our roster who will be able paint and use your wall as an evolving canvas for two years!


Wall owners (or business owners with permission from building owners) interested in having their exterior wall painted nominate their walls through the Wall Owner form. Urban Canvas has a limited amount of funds and will select walls based on quality and visibility. Wall owners will be able to choose their preferred artist from a curated Urban Canvas roster, then Urban Canvas will coordinate the mural, providing the artist with a stipend and a limited amount of paint. The selected artist will be able to add, subtract and adjust the mural throughout a two-year period and use the wall as a changing canvas.
