Call to Artists - City of Pullman's "End Racism Now" Mural

The Pullman Arts Commission invites artists living on the Palouse to submit works of art for Pullman’s new “End Racism Now” mural. The chosen design will express solidarity to end systemic racism and spotlight the importance of diversity and inclusion within our Pullman community. It might do this by re-telling art history or visually enacting other historic reparations. It might honor people or events that have had a significant impact on struggles for social or economic justice. Or, it might address solidarity in ways that we can’t imagine. For more information see the full news release.

Applications are available online here and on the Pullman Arts Commission Facebook page. Please direct questions to the Pullman Arts Commission at
