CALL FOR MURALISTS: State of the City Event (Sunnyvale)


The City of Sunnyvale invites mural artists to apply to participate at the City’s State of the City event on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019 in Downtown Sunnyvale, California.

The City welcomes applications from established and emerging Bay Area muralists who are eager to share their artistic vision with the Sunnyvale community. This all-day event attracts approximately 2,500 community members and includes the Mayor’s Address and Community Awards presentation, live entertainment, a fun activity zone, community resource tables, a dedicated art zone featuring a chalk art area for families and live mural painting demonstrations.

Muralists will be expected to work with one of two themes:
1. Light, Love, Unity: celebrating Sunnyvale’s vision of diversity and inclusion.
2. From the Valley of Heart’s Delight to Silicon Valley: A history of Sunnyvale and Santa Clara County, highlighting early settlers, the transition from agriculture and industrialization, and the rise of Silicon Valley.

Mural artists will receive a $350 honorarium, art supplies and a lunch voucher for their participation. Travel expenses and lodging will not be reimbursed or provided. The event will run simultaneously with the Saturday Farmers’ Market hosted by Urban Village Farmers’ Market Association. This artist call is open to Bay Area artists, who will be selected by a jury based on experience, individual style and overall quality of the work. Please include images of previous works with your application.

Applications due by Monday, Aug. 19, 2019
