Stormdrain Sidewalk Mural Project (Tualatin, OR) – Call For Artists

Stormdrain Sidewalk Mural Project (Tualatin, OR) – Call For Artists

Tualatin Riverkeepers and the City of Tualatin seek artists to design and paint for the Stormdrain Sidewalk Mural Project n Tualatin, Oregon. The goal of these sidewalk mural(s) is to raise awareness of stormdrains as a connection to Tualatin River water quality.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 14 Jun 2019

This artwork will work as a bilingual educational tool to remind the public that stormdrains drain directly to the waterways we use in our everyday life as drinking water and for recreation. Stormdrains connect urban areas to creeks, streams, and the Tualatin River through a system of pipes, drains, and culverts. They are located along streets and next to sidewalks. They collect stormwater from the surrounding impervious surfaces and direct it to nearby waterways. Stormdrains often blend into the surrounding urban infrastructure and are often forgotten about. The goal of this project is to bring awareness of these important urban features and the role they play in water quality.

Designs should incorporate an environmental theme, colors, and include the text: Drains to Tualatin River in English and another language of artist’s choice. Designs can also include images, icons, and symbols unique to the City of Tualatin and/or the Pacific Northwest. Mural should be no more than 4′ by 6′.

Stormdrain Sidewalk Mural Project Artist Requirements

  1. Submit a design proposal in PDF format.
  2. Attend and participate in at least two community events in Tualatin.
  3. Attend three meetings with Tualatin Riverkeepers and City of Tualatin staff. One prior to painting mural, one during painting of the mural, and a wrap-up meeting.

Stormdrain Sidewalk Mural Project artists will be notified by June 21st, 2019. Mural installation will take place in the summer of 2019. Selected artists will receive a commission of $750 USD after the completion of the mural. All materials will be supplied.

About Tualatin Riverkeepers

Tualatin Riverkeepers (TRK) is a community-based organization that protects and restores the Tualatin River watershed. They build watershed stewardship through engagement, advocacy, restoration, access, and education. At first glance, stormdrains and their unglamorous job of transporting stormwater runoff do not seem like catalysts for environmental activism. Yet, TRK has embraced stormdrains as canvasses to raise awareness about local water quality.  Tualatin Riverkeepers hopes these murals will strengthen the ties between communities living along the Tualatin River. This artwork serves as a multilingual educational tool to remind the public that stormdrains carry urban runoff (e.g. oil, lawn chemicals, trash, pollutants) directly to the waterways we use in everyday life for drinking and recreation.
