The 63rd street mural committee is seeking an artist or team to Design a new mural for the retaining wall (north) side of N 63rd street and AURORA AVENUE N.
Eligibility: Open to all artists living in Washington
Deadline: April 25. 2014 at 5 p.m.
For more than a decade the whimsical mural painted in the 90’s at the Aurora underpass at N. 63rdStreet was left largely unmolested. Two years ago graffiti overwhelmed the mural and it now stands covered by solid gray paint. The 63rd Street Mural Steering Committee has received a grant from the Department of Neighborhoods to create new artwork designed by local artists and maintained by the community for a period of five years. The goal is to create a mural that will beautify the neighborhood, delight passers-by and stand as a statement of our community’s commitment to this heavily travelled gateway.
