CRUSH WALLS Mural Festival Seeks Artists

Budget: Stipend TBA
Eligibility: Individual artists and groups who create painted murals

Project Description

CRUSH WALLS has grown to become Colorado’s largest urban art event. Showcasing local and international talent, it has been bringing art out of the galleries and into the streets from its very inception, reaching a pinnacle of 100+ public art murals last year. CRUSH WALLS is an event that aims to support and engage community through access to, engagement with, and education through arts and culture. CRUSH addresses the cultural significance and importance of art for people of all ages and backgrounds that may not have the opportunity to experience it otherwise.

Rooted in the ethos of the RiNo Art District — ‘where art is made’ — the Denver festival has been both a platform for creative expression and a catalyst for awesome collective gatherings. Each succeeding edition has increased the festival’s pulling power, attracting actors from the global artistic community and driving locals and visitors alike to this expanding urban art movement.

Selection Process

A selection committee comprised of long-time local artists and community leaders will score the applications and make recommendations to the CRUSH WALLS 2020 event producers, who will make final recommendations on artist participation and placement. The committee will have a final review of these recommendations before the artist lineup is finalized and announced. Announcement of the final artist lineup will take place on Friday June 12th, 2020.
