We support the design, permitting, execution, and marketing of the mural for your business.
COMMUNITY PUBLIC ART MURALS
RiseUP for Arts supports nonprofits, community groups, schools, cities, and towns to organize large-scale public art projects throughout their community. Public Art and murals are critical to bringing positivity to a neighborhood and they can change the way people perceive a particular community.
RiseUP for Arts artists are available for individual commission projects for you or your family. Our artists have a wide range of techniques and styles that can be customized to your project need.
Whether it is your daughter's bedroom that can be turned into a Princess Wonderland or having a pair of sneakers customized with an original design, we can make it happen.
