Calling Santa Barbara County artists! We invite you to submit your artistic concepts to the Earth Day Mural Call For Entries hosted in partnership by The Arts Fund, Community Environmental Council, Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, Paseo Nuevo, and Santa Barbara BCycle.

The theme of this year’s Earth Day Festival is Climate Leadership. The event celebrates key areas where climate leaders are stepping up to do the critical work needed to combat the climate crisis. Santa Barbara County artists are invited to submit a proposal for a mural that expresses what Earth Day and Climate Leadership mean to you. We are inspired by the leadership of Amanda Gorman, the National Youth Poet Laureate, and her poem Earthrise from 2018.

One concept will be selected to appear on the Paseo Nuevo Arts Terrace Parking Deck, on the exterior wall of Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara. The selected artist, or artist group, will receive a stipend and a materials budget to paint their mural between April 19-23, 2021. Support for painting the mural will be provided by the project partners. The completed mural will be revealed on the final day of the virtual Earth Day Festival, April 24!
