Open 2023 Muralist Call 
Common Wealth Murals manages the Fresh Paint Springfield mural festival and individual mural commissions in Massachusetts. We build partnerships between artists and community groups, nonprofits or small businesses to create public art that reflects and resonates with the neighborhood and communities where the art will live. We anticipate offering 25 mural commissions in 2023.

We are building a roster of muralists interested in community-oriented mural commissions. For these projects, the client will determine the theme of the mural, and the artist will create the design and respond to client feedback with design edits.  The Artist Fee for each mural will be between $3,000 - 6,000. 

Common Wealth Murals manages client and community engagement, and provides lifts, paint, supplies and project support.  Artists are responsible for their own transportation and must be legally allowed to work in the US. 

Artists with a practice of engaging community in their work are strongly encouraged to apply. 

We look forward to learning more about you and seeing examples of your work!
