Artists will have full creative freedom to make a masterpiece of their choosing, and the murals will be completed throughout the months of February and March. They’ll be on display April 25 – 28, 2024 at Festival of the Arts, which is visited by over 550,000 people each year. A public vote will be held after the murals are completed, and the winner will receive a prize pack. All artists can keep their murals after voting has concluded.
