“The Mural Project” is a quilt of paintings, each as one-of-a-kind as our community. Over the summer, 21 local artists were commissioned to create 45 panels with the theme “Backyard Universe,” which is now on display at Open Space for Arts and Community and virtually on our website. On our website, you can view the mural in detail as well as see the artists and their individual panels. Visit “The Mural Project” in-person by stopping by Open Space while the sun is out.

The Mural Project” is part of the !Attention! Artists at Work jobs program. !Attention! Artists at Work (AAW) is a jobs program led by Open Space for Arts and Community in partnership with local nonprofit organizations. The goal of the program is to hire artists who have been financially impacted by COVID-19 during this challenging economic time. The first project of this initiative, “The Mural Project,” was inspired by large public art murals, as well as the AIDS quilt.

Thank you to the artists, sponsors, donors, and our friends at Vashon Island Visual Artists for making this project possible.
