The White Center Chamber of Commerce is holding a mural contest along this wall on S.W. 107th St. Contestants record their work with a photo (as someone might paint over it the next day) and the winner of $100 and a larger mural project will be announced in September.
White Center Chamber of Commerce Mural Contest kicks off
$100 prize and the nod for a larger public art project for the winner
Seven panels along the south wall of S.W. 107th St. between 16th Ave S.W. and 17th Ave S.W. beckon any and all street artists for the White Center Chamber of Commerce's Mural Contest.
The fine print is below, but in a nutshell, there are seven panels artists can use as their canvas. Once your mural is done, snap a photo of yourself next to it, because the next day (or hour) someone else might swoop in and paint over your work.
The Chamber asks that all work be "respectful and family-oriented."
All murals documented with a photo and sent to the Chamber will be entered into the contest throughout the summer, and the winner gets $100 in September and the opportunity to create a larger mural in the neighborhood.
Get ready to see the western-most panels of the 107th wall change like a kaleidoscope.
Contest Rules from Mark Ufkes, president of WC Chamber of Commerce
Choose one of seven numbered panels, paint your mural on it (the mural must be respectful and family-oriented), take a picture with you standing next to your mural, date it, and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the September Chamber meeting, the winning artist will be announced, the cash prize awarded, and the artist will be asked to paint a larger mural in White Center. Only one award will be given.
Artists understand that additional mural artists might cover or tag your mural and paint their own on the same panel (the chamber does not have control over this issue), so it is important that you get your photo taken immediately after your mural is completed. The Chamber accwepts no liability for any injury, damage, or other incident associated with this contest. We are just trying to add more street art to White Center and identify local mural artists for future projects.
