2016 Summer of Murals Call to Artist is Open
Stay tuned for updates for 2016 “Summer of Murals” contest.
2016 Themes will be centered around –
The CCMS Task Force has recruited property owners in Downtown Vancouver, rapidly becoming the Arts & Entertainment District of the community, to allow the usage of at least 3 outdoor walls on their properties for 3 murals. Each will tell a special Vancouver story, beautify the environment and help build Vancouver as a “destination location”.
Statistics show that tourism monies spent on arts & cultural activities exceed those spent on sports activities, demonstrating that the Summer of Murals project will contribute to the health of the Vancouver economy. Certainly a part of that contribution is the prize monies given to the competition winners:
• • • •
1st Place Prize: $3,000
2nd Place Prize: $2,000
3rd Place Prize: $1,500
Honor Mentions Prizes (4th – 5th place): $1,000
Community Choice Prize: $500
Artists are asked to visit the website to familiarize themselves with the details, review the suggested historical and cultural themes, and then create a proposed design for the competition. Deadline for submissions is May 9th, either online or by mail.
Submissions by mail must be postmarked by May 9th, 2016.
Wall 1 – Not too Shabby – 1515 Broadway St
Wall 2 – Family Law Attorney – 2300 Main St. Vancouver, WA 98660 – South Side
Wall 3 – House of Vintage – 1501 Main Street
It is important that each competitor research facts and accuracy of their design concept. CCMS emphatically encourages all artists to employ their imagination and creativity full force — the end result is not meant to be a textbook history lesson. The idea is creative, colorful, inventive interpretations of the rich history and cultural development of the community.
