Tualatin Riverkeepers and the City of Tualatin seek artists to design and paint sidewalk mural(s) in Tualatin, Oregon. The goal of these sidewalk mural(s) is to raise awareness of stormdrains as a connection to Tualatin River water quality.
This artwork will work as a bilingual educational tool to remind the public that stormdrains drain directly to the waterways we use in our everyday life as drinking water and for recreation. Stormdrains connect urban areas to creeks, streams, and the Tualatin River in our community through a system of pipes, drains, and culverts. They are located along streets and next to sidewalks and collect stormwater from the surrounding impervious surfaces and direct it to nearby waterways. Stormdrains often blend into the surrounding urban infrastructure and are often forgotten about. Our goal of this project is to bring awareness of these important urban features and the role they play in water quality.
Selected artists will receive a commission of $750 and all materials and supplies will be supplied.
Designs are due by 5pm on June 14th, 2019. Selected artists will be notified by June 21st, 2019. Mural installation will take place in the summer of 2019.
