Artists Sought For Town Center Mural

The Town of Burlington’s Economic Development Office is thrilled to announce an opportunity for artists to leave their mark on Burlington’s Town Center. Looking to enrich the area’s visual landscape, the town is accepting proposals from mural artists for a $15,000 grant. The award will go to an outdoor postcard style mural on the exterior wall of 202 Cambridge Street, facing Moran Avenue. Click Here to submit a mural application

The Town of Burlington is eager to invest in public art, add aesthetic beauty to the Town Center and create a bright, welcoming atmosphere for residents, visitors, and businesses. Burlington’s Economic Development Director, Melisa Tintocalis, says the initiative is three-fold.

“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,” said Tintocalis. 

The mural is part of Burlington’s collaborative “placemaking” process to identify and implement beneficial improvements to public spaces. Click Here to check out Burlington’s Town Center Placemaking efforts and its playbook of ideas.

The mural site is also the location of the Town Center Community Beer Garden that will be taking place every Thursday in September 2023.
