The Washougal Arts and Culture Alliance (WACA) is soliciting proposals from qualified artists, or teams of artists, to design and create an exterior mural on the south-facing wall of the Los Dos Compadres Cantina located at 1713 E Street in Washougal.
The project’s goal is to create a piece of public art to improve the visual environment along the commercial area of E Street with a mural that reflects the spirit of the City. The subject matter of the mural should highlight the diversity of Washougal history and culture and might include images honoring Indigenous and/or Hispanic culture and history. Selection of the muralist will be determined by the WACA Board in consultation with the property owner.
Proposals will be received by WACA until June 1, 2021, and the project awarded by June 15. Work is to be completed by mutual agreement with the artist, WACA and the building owner but expectations are for completion to happen by the end of summer.
