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.
Students from Lutheran High School and Denver artist Daniel Ness were awarded the project.
