Yes and no. We want wall owners to have a vested interest in the work being displayed on their buildings. However, artists will need to have some level of creative freedom to create their murals. Designs must be approved and agreed upon by the artist, wall owners and Urban Canvas before any work can begin. Designs that include subjects of hateful imagery, pornography, or illegal/illicit activities will not be accepted for approval.

Mural costs include the artist stipend, supplies, and the rental of lifts or scaffolding (if needed). Each wall is considered for supplemental funding by Urban Canvas on a case by case basis. If your wall or project is a good fit for the Urban Canvas model, supplemental funding may be as much as 50%, but not to exceed $1,500.
Each project will have its own timeline to be determined and agreed upon with the wall owner, artist and Urban Canvas.
No, not through this program. The objective of this project is to foster the artistic assets of the Eugene community, and to allow artists to develop their skills and talents through mural creation. Including a name or logo may change this project from a mural to a sign. The City of Eugene has ordinances that must be followed for signs. Please visit the City of Eugene Land Use website for more information.
All murals created with the help of Urban Canvas must be maintained for a minimum of 12 months post completion.
