Bay Area artists are invited to respond to a call from the Palo Alto Public Art Program to work on a collaborative, temporary Black Lives Matter mural along Hamilton Avenue, in front of Palo Alto City Hall, the program announced Friday, June 19.
According to the announcement, up to 16 artists and/or art collectives will be selected to work on the project, with each painting an individual letter in their own style. Black artists and artists of color are especially encouraged to apply. Artists will receive a $700 stipend and must provide their own materials.
