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) 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. This program would not be possible without support from The Downtown Tacoma Partnership, and the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber.
