EDMONDS MURAL PROJECT
In 2017, the Art Walk Edmonds Board started talking about ways to further their mission in the Edmonds community. Taking over the defunct Edmonds Mural Society seemed like a perfect fit! A committee was formed, and was rebranded as the Edmonds Mural Project (EMP).
Right now behind-the-scenes work is going on to compile a comprehensive history of the current murals in Edmonds, as well as their age and condition. The committee is evaluating which murals need to be replaced, as well as determining possible new sites, themes, and types for more murals. This is a delicate process and the committee is determined to do it right, yet take advantage of the good weather in the summer months.
Stay tuned as a timeline and call-for-artists will be forthcoming!
mural sponsorship opportunities
The cost of removing and repairing aging murals, as well as installing new murals runs in the thousands of dollars. Our only fundraisers, the Summer Wine Walks, help us a little, but your sponsorship could help a lot!
