West Hill Neighborhood Call for Mural Artists



The West Hill Neighborhood Organization is seeking a Northeast Ohio mural artist to design and paint a mural in Akron’s historic West Hill neighborhood.

The new mural will be located at the bottom of the hill at Locust Street and Glendale Ave and will be painted on the retaining wall across from the entrance to historic Glendale Cemetery.

Artists are encouraged to submit past work examples/portfolios by June 8, 2023, to be considered to be one of three artists to be paid $250 honorariums for the creation of a sketch of a proposed mural idea.

  • The three selected artists will be notified by 6/17/23.
  • The deadline for sketches by the three selected artists will be 7/24/23.

  • The finished mural will include a prompt that will be provided to the three selected artists who are selected to sketch their ideas. WHNO will also provide some historical facts and information about the West Hill Neighborhood.
  • The mural wall will be prepped and primed in advance for the finalist.
  • The wall area to be painted is 7.25’ high x 30’-40′ wide.
  • The budget for the mural will be $5,000, and must include all materials (minus the prepping and priming.)
