The city said the selected artist will create a mural that’ll cover 5,000 square feet that’ll highlight the natural habitat and history around the American River watershed and surrounding river environment.
The winner of the project will receive $10,000 to design and will enter into a purchase agreement with the city. The artist will submit the artwork to officials, but won’t be responsible for the printing and installation costs of the mural. The printing and installation aspects will be handled by the Office of Arts + Culture’s Art in Public Places program.
The project is being funded from a grant received from the California State Legislature and the city of Sacramento, according to officials.
