City of San Luis Obispo calling for artists for new public art projects

Posted at 5:12 PM, Sep 15, 2020

The City of San Luis Obispo is inviting local artists to apply for some new street painting projects.

The public art projects will include the installation of painted murals within bulbouts at select intersections, painting the tops of the median diverters on Morro Street, and a mural on the Pismo Street k-rail.

According to the city, the artwork should reflect the character of each neighborhood while providing a visual cue to drivers that the corridors prioritize bicycle and pedestrian travel.

To be eligible to apply, artists must live in San Luis Obispo County. Click here for complete rules and link to an application.

The chosen artists will receive up to $6,000, depending on the project, to complete their work.
