Mural Arts in Palestine, Texas

Mural Arts Program

Dr Pepper Mural
The Visit Palestine seeks to commission a professional visual artist or artist team to design and paint murals at various locations city-wide. Each year, the city will designate the location of the murals and detail the stipend and criteria for each canvas.

The projects should meet the following objectives:
• Enhance the public space.
• Provide a photo worthy selfie station for locals and visitors to take pictures in front of various backdrops.
• Serve to beautify individual buildings and neighborhoods, discourage graffiti, and add to the unique charm and character of the City.
• Draw visitors and tourists to the City.

Artist Eligibility

Preference will be given to local artists or artist teams who have experience in mural/large-scale artworks and prior experience in the creation of public art.
