In response to boarded-up businesses in Tacoma, Spaceworks Tacoma has partnered with local organizations to create a rapid mural response program.
These temporary murals, painted directly onto installed plywood panels, serve to 1) reduce crime and graffiti, 2) support local businesses, 3) provide income for local artists, and 4) offer civic hope and positive messaging.
Artists are commissioned at $75 per 4’x8′ panel. For businesses downtown, the Downtown Tacoma Partnership is offering these murals for free. Additional funds are available for murals in other business districts.
