Artists who applied for the first South Pasadena mural round are encouraged to apply for this second round. Artists will need to fill out a new application.

Application Information

Each application submitted between December 12, 2023 and January 24, 2024, at 11:59 pm will undergo a review process by a panel consisting of a South Pasadena City Representative, a representative from each business, a Mural Artist, and an Art Curator. Artists will be notified of the results no later than February 12, 2024 (Please note that the City Commission meeting may impact the notification timeline). Artists who are not selected will also receive a notification at that time.

Once notified, the selected artist will receive detailed measurements and photos of their assigned location. Artists will also have the opportunity to schedule an in-person meeting with Creative Pinellas, the City of Pasadena Representative, and the business owner of the awarded location. This meeting will involve a tour of the space and will take place within one week of the selection date.

Following the site review and meeting with Creative Pinellas, the City Representative, and the business owner, the artist will be required to submit three (3) Mural Final Design proposals for approval. Edits can be requested for the artist to review if a design cannot be agreed upon within the first three designs. This is a collaborative project and feedback from stakeholders should be expected for the designs.
