Post Date:06/22/2020

The City of Olathe is thrilled to announce the launch of the second annual street pavement mural project at the intersection of Park St. and Cherry St. in Downtown Olathe.

Are you an artist or artist team interested in painting a mural on the concrete pavement this summer?!  If so, we are looking for you! This rotating exhibit infuses public art into a recent street rehab project, adding a new, unique layer to the public art experience in Downtown Olathe.

To apply, please submit the following information by July 1, 2020:

  • A current resume and/or bio with phone number and email address
  • Five to ten examples of recent commissioned outdoor/indoor mural projects
  • A numbered image list identifying titles, sizes, materials used, locations, and approximate costs of these mural projects.
  • A brief statement or summary of what you envision for this project.

Artists or artists teams should be 18 years or older and should have experience with painting outdoor murals. The selected candidate will have a $3,000 budget to be used for design, materials, labor, transportation, insurance and any installation or maintenance costs.
