The City of Dubuque is seeking artists to design and paint sidewalk murals at five locations for the 2020 Storm Drain Mural Project. The project is part of the City's education and outreach efforts to raise awareness about stormwater pollution and comes after a successful pilot in 2019 which produced three storm drain murals.

The Storm Drain Mural Project is open to all artists of all skill levels, including groups and students. Local artists are strongly encouraged to apply

Design concepts must be submitted by Sept. 15, through the City's website or by mail. The murals must be painted by Oct. 31, 2020. Upon project completion, the artist will receive a $500 stipend for each mural painted.  Artists are welcome to submit more than one design.
