JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Jackson Hole Public Art is expanding the temporary downtown mural walk and needs additional works of art to fill out the project.

Stickum Up! will open during Old West Days on May 24 with a walking tour and celebration. The public exhibit will close during PARKing Day on September 20 with a street party.

In all, the mural walk is expected to be viewed by thousands of summer visitors, residents, and arts patrons. Walls and alleyways will be transformed with art that is free and accessible to all, and that celebrates our local mountain culture.

JH Public Art is soliciting 2-5 high resolution images of existing work by local artists that celebrate our unique mountain culture, and contribute to creating a vibrant and walkable downtown. Artists will be paid an honorarium of $250 for use of image, and for their time and commitment to install the piece in person.

Images will be selected based on artistic merit, appropriateness for viewing by all ages, business input, and relevance to location. JH Public Art reserves the right to select only images it deems a good fit for the location and the overall event.

Artist applications are due by April 26. Images may be submitted via email as well.
