ActiveSGV is searching for a local artist with an interest to paint a climate-themed mural that highlights the need for environmental justice and climate solutions for the most vulnerable communities.
We hope for this mural to be representative of the urgency for climate solutions while celebrating the resiliency and organizing movements of working-class residents in the SGV making strides to advocate and defend pollutant burdened communities.
For this proposal, we invite artists of all experiences and skill levels in painting murals to submit their work for consideration. This is a paid opportunity and the mural artist will be given a stipend of $3,750 upon completion of the mural. A materials budget of $3,000 can be used to purchase climate-friendly paint, paintbrushes, and other materials needed.
Mural concepts must incorporate one or more of the below-listed themes:
● Environmental Justice
● Clean Energy (ie: solar energy)
● Native plants, flowers, trees, animals
● San Gabriel Valley Community (diversity, identity, and history). Special consideration will be given to proposals uplifting working-class communities of color:
● Bassett/ Avocado Heights/ La Puente, or
● El Monte/ South El Monte
