The Paint Parker mural project is a “tagging” prevention program which facilitates the creation of new murals in areas where tagging has occurred along the trails and underpasses within the Town of Parker. Paint Parker is a collaborative effort between the Parker Police, Parks and Recreation and the Cultural Departments.
Artists were asked to submit a resume of relevant past experience and a rendering of the proposed mural. Submissions were considered based in part on the following criteria
- Design must successfully integrate Town of Parker community themes with design principles.
- Quality and strength of artist’s past work as demonstrated in the submitted materials.
- Demonstrated knowledge in the unique consideration of exterior murals and public spaces and longevity of final product.
- Ability to create a unique and engaging artwork that is appropriate in concept, materials and scale for this project. Artist should keep in mind that a class of high school students new to mural painting will be completing similar murals in the Town of Parker, and selection may be based on level of student participation.
