Mural Project Edmonds, a subcommittee of Art Walk Edmonds, seeks qualified muralists or muralist teams to design and create exterior murals for a series of locations in downtown Edmonds.

The artwork is intended to enhance the overall character and atmosphere of the downtown core and support a welcoming environment, spokeswoman Rachel Dobbins said.

The design of each mural should take into consideration the location of the wall, the architecture of the structure, the viewing angles of the surface and the impact on the surrounding area.

“Edmonds is a vibrant arts community with a rich history,” Dobbins said. “The scale of the city and its location within the Puget Sound area provides its visitors with stunning scenery. It is the intent of Mural Project Edmonds to enhance this character and not detract from Edmonds’ unique situation.”

For the first phase, two locations for new mural installations have been identified for this summer, with a projected completion deadline of Sept. 30.

The two locations are the northeast corner of Fifth Avenue North and Main Street (Sound Styles wall), and the east-facing wall of the building housing The Mar.Ket, fishmonger and eatery at 508 Main St.

The call is open to muralists from Washington and Oregon. The deadline is July 9. Muralists can find details and directions for submittal at www.muralprojectedmonds.org.
