Murals

Why get a mural?

• Murals become landmarks in the community.

• Murals define the cultural identity of a neighborhood or an entire city.

• Neighborhoods with murals are desirable locations for families with children.

• Inner-city areas, which are plagued with blight, often have high levels of violent crime; murals promote public safety and violence reduction, while spurring youth development and education through art.

• Murals give the youth in the community a positive means to express their identity and form a sense of ownership, civic pride, and investment in the community.

• Aerosol writing promotes handwriting and literacy through development of calligraphic skills.

• Through painting, youth are able to develop artistic abilities which are often not taught or underserved in school curriculums.

• Mural programs are important vocational training opportunities for youth, and can lead to careers as painters, graphic designers, or commercial artists.

Additional Costs

To increase the longevity of your mural, quality primers, gessos and clearcoats maybe applied for an additional cost.
