Each project is different. In some cases, the project budget has already been predetermined, so the artist can make the choice to accept or pass on the project as offered. In other cases, artists will be asked to propose a budget for the project.

Artists can submit an application using the Artist form. Wall owners and project managers will review the roster and determine their top choices or choice. If selected, the artist will be contacted by Urban Canvas or by the wall owner directly.
Artists are required to live within Lane County. Transportation, parking and lodging costs will not be provided or reimbursed.
If an artist is not interested in an offered wall or project, then they are not required to accept the proposal. As a best practice, the artist should follow up on all offers with a response.
Artists may be given varying levels of creative freedom depending on the project. Sometimes the artist may be provided with prompts to direct the work. All designs must be approved and agreed upon by all parties before any work can begin. Designs that include subjects of hateful imagery, pornography, or illegal/illicit activities (e.g., as vandalism or drug use) will not be accepted.
