In response to boarded-up businesses in Tacoma during COVID-19, Spaceworks has partnered with local organizations and businesses to create a rapid mural program.
These temporary murals, painted directly onto installed plywood panels, serve to 1) support local businesses, 2) reduce crime and unwanted graffiti, 3) provide income for local artists, and 4) offer civic hope and positive messaging.
Enjoy murals and hear directly from the artists that created them by taking a virtual guided walking tour through Downtown Tacoma, organized by Spaceworks as part of Downtown On the Go’s Walk Tacoma series.
Support businesses and artists affected by COVID-19 and sponsor a mural. Since March 2020, Spaceworks and its partners have installed more than 20 Rapid Murals throughout Tacoma. Help us expand this program into 2021. To sponsor the Rapid Mural program, please contact Michael Liang at firstname.lastname@example.org
