Artists sought for street murals in Muskegon’s Lakeside Business District


MUSKEGON, MI – Now that it has the funding in hand, the city of Muskegon is seeking artists to paint street murals in its Lakeside Business District.

The city recently was the recipient of a $5,000 Bridge Builders “micro grant” from the Michigan Municipal League.

The Lakeside Cross Walk Art Project involves four murals painted on Lakeshore Drive pavement. Murals will be painted on crosswalks at Mann, Moon, Torrent and Blodgett streets.

The city is accepting applications from artists interested in painting the murals. Each selected artist will receive a $1,000 stipend plus $250 for materials.

Applications are available by clicking here.

Designs should “celebrate” Lakeside, Muskegon Lake and the City of Muskegon. Artists are asked to provide information about their background and public art experience along with a mockup of the proposed concept and photos of previous artwork.

The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. Aug. 7, with awardees being announced by Aug. 18.

Murals are to be completed in one day during the second half of September.
