Arlington Mural Project

ArtsArlington received a Transformative Growth Grant to explore bringing new murals to Arlington in collaboration with the Arlington Chamber of Commerce (ACC) and the Arlington Center for the Arts (ACA). The grant funds the creation of a comprehensive plan to guide development of murals in the Town. After a 6-month planning phase, the partners have funding to test drive the plan by implementing 1 to 3 murals.
We invite everyone who lives or works in Arlington to fill out a brief community input survey sharing your ideas for themes and nominating walls for murals.  Please take 3 minutes to participate here!
Deadline:  November 7, 2022
The Commission seeks community representatives who are excited to consider both the larger vision and the many logistical details necessary to bring  murals to the Town. We seek members to represent diverse community perspectives and stakeholders. Neighborhood residents, local businesses, building owners, artists, youth, and representatives of key partners such as local schools, nonprofits and relevant town departments are welcomed to participate. The Community Advisory Committee will meet three times to discuss issues including: criteria for site selection, artist selection methods, and models for community engagement. They will make recommendations to the AMP Steering Committee. Please apply here!
An informational meeting will be held on Thursday, November 17 via zoom.  Please check back for registration information.
Take a look at photos collected by Cecily Miller, our Curator of Public Art, from Arlington and beyond! These images give a sense of the variety of themes, styles and sites possible.
