A project to add new murals to four Capitol Hill buildings is moving forward with a round of community voting on artist-submitted designs. The Seattle Mural Project announced its search for submissions in March.
Voting can be completed by clicking the linked location names below or starting here. You’ll also want to make sure to view the slideshows on the voting site:
It is very important that you also take the time to review the portfolio slideshow for the submitted designs. Some of the designs are fully realized while others are more of a conceptual sketch. By reviewing the portfolio images, you can see more clearly what the artist is intending.
Artists selected to participate will be awarded $3,000 in compensation upon completion of their murals thanks to the city’s Neighborhood Matching Fund. “The muralists will also be provided all of the paint and equipment they need to complete their vision thanks to the generous contributions of Miller Paint and Art Primo who both stepped up to generously sponsor the event,” according to the Seattle Mural Project organizers.
Links to the location voting pages with all submissions and design highlights culled by CHS are below. On the voting pages you’ll find even more ideas from around the world for how to add even more color to the Hill. Organizers say voting closes May 31st.
