The artists are invited to participate by our Curators! They then collaborate to arrive at a design that will land on the Walls.
That depends on the level of detail and how the artist chooses to work. Some take a matter of days, some take weeks or longer!
The duration ranges from one year to at least five years.

The Walls are generously supported by the Kranzberg Arts Foundation and other institutions that we partner with. We believe that artwork is real work, so the artists are fairly compensated or supported depending on different circumstances.
You’re involved just by enjoying the artist’s work! You can also promote the artists by following them and the Walls on social media! This is also where you will find volunteer opportunities as they arise.
Possibly! You can’t just walk in on your own and start one, but we may have opportunities for you to be involved. When those opportunities arise, we will post about them in our newsletter and our social media accounts. Give us a follow on Instagram to stay updated!
Feel free to send your question to [email protected]! We look forward to hearing from you.
