Want a Mural?
How to Get a Mural for Your Business or Organization
What do i need to get started?
Painting a mural can be a big undertaking, and in order to get one painted on your business there are certain conditions that must be met. Many businesses send requests to the teacher of the class, Kim Martinez, asking for murals to be painted on their buildings. In order for any of these proposals to be considered, the mural must be beneficial to both the community and the students. If the mural proposal is purely commercial (a giant advertisement for the company) then it will not be considered at all. If you take a look at past murals, many of the paintings illustrate a community coming together for a good cause. It is also important to note that because of the nature of public art there may be a need for contracts or waivers to be signed by the participating parties.
What is this going to cost?
While these murals benefit everyone that participates, Kim Martinez strongly believes that all artists need to be compensated for their art, and this is no different. Participating students are getting college credit for their paintings so they cannot be paid directly, but at the end of the year Kim takes the money earned and uses it to take the class on a trip to see art in other locations. This year the class will be going to Chicago to look at art. That being said, there is no set price for the paintings and it can vary depending on the size, location, and subject of the painting.
