Mile of Murals Seeking 2017 Mural Artist

Anchoring the Glenwood Ave Arts District, the Mile of Murals project along the CTA embankment from Pratt to Estes tells stories of Rogers Park and the world around us.   Curated by the creatives at Mix Masters Murals, the project adds new pieces each in the 19 different locations that make up the "mile".

The project is accepting applications for 2017's piece.   Experienced mural painters should check out the 2017 application available over at Chicago Artists Resource

Click here for 2017 GAAF artist application! Qualified applications are processed in order of submission, within category.  (For example: we fill and close the jewelry category quickly due to the number of applicants, whereas a category like sculpture may have availability all the way until the last Fest booth is assigned.  The wait-list is processed in the same fashion.)

The Glenwood Ave Arts Fest is proud to include only works that are personally made by the exhibiting artists.
