You will be matched by April 15 and material orders will be due to MC Art Supplies by April 22, 2022. Your pre-order will ensure that you get colors and products you need. MC will have limited materials on hand the day of. You will receive more information on how to place your order in the matching email.
Live voting will be held throughout the event for people’s choice on their favorite street and wall murals. There will also be a juried competition for street and wall murals.

- Artists who are sponsored by a local business must collaborate with their sponsor and invite their input on the theme or content of the artwork.
