City Hall Parking Garage Mural



The Reno Arts & Culture Commission (RACC) is seeking proposals from artists for a public art opportunity in Downtown Reno. Artists working in the United States and who have experience designing and executing projects with a similar budget and scope are encouraged to apply.

Project Description:
The Reno Arts & Culture Commission is looking for an artist/artist team to design and create a large-scale mural on the exterior of the City Hall Parking Garage. This project will revitalize the immediate area and add life to the City Hall Parking Garage, highlighting Reno’s arts and culture to visitors of downtown and local communities. The City Hall Parking Garage faces directly onto City Plaza, called the “Art Plaza,” where multiple events are held each year and in which numerous art pieces are installed, including the iconic BELIEVE sculpture by artists Laura Kimpton and Jeff Schomberg.

The mural will be painted on the exterior south wall, facing E. 1st Street, the southwest corner--with elements wrapping into the alleyway and the southeast corner. Artists should take into consideration the style and architecture of City Hall. The City Hall Parking Garage surface will be primed and prepped by the City. Approximate square footage to be painted is around 8,000 square feet.

Project budget is $70,000 for the entire project. This budget is inclusive of all costs associated with the design, planning, installation, and completion of the project. The budget includes all travel costs and insurance. This project is funded by the City of Reno’s 2% for Public Art Ordinance / Public Art Fund.
