Kicking things off with a new Wakuda mural in the University District.
Awesome new cherry blossoms going up here in the U-District. This work in progress will continue through the month of July. We’ll announce the location soon but for now you’ll have to follow the clues. Clue #1: Some call it “The Ave” but it’s actually a “way” to find our newest mural. Clue #2: Near the mural is a restaurant that shares its name with an Area 51 employee and Seattle pop culture alumni.
A bunch of good things coming up. Nosego is currently scheduled to paint in SoDo in August. – ALSO – Save the date – Second Thursday in September for our Seattle Mural Project party in conjunction with the Capitol Hill Art Walk. Location and details to be announced.
Don’t forget to share our Indiegogo crowd funding campaign with your people. We have 8 days left.

We are soliciting contractor bids for painting prep and consultation. Our job includes assistance in two areas:
A. Selection, arrangement, setup and teardown of man lift equipment, either cherry picker, scaffold or otherwise based on contractor recommendation. This equipment would be used for prep and priming, and by our painters for mural painting.
B. Evaluation of the painting surface(s) with delivery of recommendations for wall prep procedure and estimated prep duration. Prep procedures should take into consideration existing wall coatings and sealants such as elastomeric technologies. Procedures will be determined that will eliminate damage to any weather barrier coatings. Procedures will take into consideration compatibility issues between existing coatings, and newly applied primers, sealants, and subsequent paint layers. Procedures will be designed with the objective of avoiding “catastrophic” paint failure for the duration of 3 to 5 years.
The bidding opportunity ends Wednesday June 25th. unless otherwise posted.

Friends of Seattle Mural Project –
We need your donation. Even a small donation will make the biggest difference. The city won’t just write us a check. They will only reimburse us after we’ve purchased the necessary supplies – such as paint, scaffolding and safety equipment – ourselves. Your contribution will literally make this project come to life.
Thank you for your support!

A lot of people have been asking when we will reveal the winners for our call to artists. Rest assured we are hard at work reviewing the submissions, and there are a lot. We are working to narrow down the entries to a group of finalists. Check back often because we will be giving the public a chance to weigh in on the submissions.
Its time for artists to get their final submissions in as our 2014 call to artists comes to a close.
Artists will have until midnight tonight to complete and submit their entries to be considered for the Seattle Mural Project 2014 Capitol Hill Seattle project.
Good Luck Everybody!
