Burlington, Massachusetts (August 1, 2023) – The Town of Burlington’s Economic Development Office is thrilled to announce a unique opportunity for artists to leave their mark on the heart of Burlington’s Town Center. Seeking to enrich the area’s visual landscape, the Town is accepting proposals from mural artists for a $15,000 grant award. This grant will fund an outdoor postcard mural on the exterior wall of 202 Cambridge Street, facing Moran Avenue.
Calling All Artists and Designers
We warmly invite artists and designers experienced in crafting captivating outdoor postcard murals to submit applications. The Town is eager to invest in public art to add aesthetic beauty to the Town Center and create a bright, welcoming atmosphere for residents, visitors, and businesses.
A Mural with a Purpose
The Town’s Economic Development Director, Melisa Tintocalis, described the intention behind this initiative, “The three main goals of the mural project are to 1) enhance the Town Center by transforming an ordinary wall into a vibrant work of art; 2) create an inviting space that attracts fresh interest to our Town Center’s small businesses; and 3) celebrate Burlington’s charm through visual art.”
