  1. CALL TO ARTISTS:  SNAKE RIVER BREWING MURAL FOR WILD WALLS

JH Public Art is seeking a muralist to create one large mural for Snake River Brewing that highlights the beauty of our scenic and wild Snake River, Teton glaciers, and water sheds unique to our area. The mural will depict how a healthy watershed is connected to a healthy ecosystem that benefits people, plants, animals, and fishes. We seek murals that are inspiring, eye catching, and add to the beauty of the built environment.

This mural will be the cornerstone artwork of an event called Wild Walls, and murals will be paired with augmented reality features that promote a greater understanding and awareness about local water quality issues by providing educational content and proactive solutions that demonstrate how individuals can help to preserve and protect local water quality. By siting profound artworks in iconic public settings Wild Walls aims to reach broad audiences with conservation messages through public art.

ARTIST ELIGIBILITY: Artists located in the United States are invited to apply, however, artists located in the Snake River Plain, which includes Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington, may be given preference. For details to download the PDF here: SRB.Mural.Call
