Palm Springs Mural Festival 2019 (aka PS Mural Fest and PSMF) is proud to present this inaugural event. We are requesting muralist or muralist group proposals for large-scale murals to be displayed throughout the City of Palm Springs, CA.
Artists are being asked to submit proposals for both temporary and permanent display. Selected works will be on view for 6-12 months depending on the assigned sites and their locations.
In the inaugural year of PS Mural Fest, we are choosing to launch with the theme, WORDS MATTER. Words are powerful. They have the ability to inspire, motivate, and persuade, or to discourage, dismiss, and dissuade. We have chosen 14 of the most inspiring and profoundly relevant concepts that speak to the fundamentals of what it means to be human. Our goal is to have our competing artists choose a powerful word and express it as an artistic mural. As we all know language is the creative manifestation of human thought and these powerful concepts will certainly provoke, inspire, and captivate audiences for years to come!
