The City of San Marcos Mural Arts Program both commissions murals and provides grants and design assistance to artists in an effort to place murals on private property throughout the city.
Murals can enliven an otherwise drab alley or parking lot and add to the character and sense of place in a community, and can also beautify an area by covering and preventing graffiti.
The program is sponsored by the San Marcos Mural Arts Program using money allocated from the City's hotel occupancy tax collections.
Since 2014, the San Marcos Mural Arts Program has commissioned and/or provided grants for several murals throughout the city.
Property owners interested in having a mural placed on their walls should email Arts Coordinator Trey Hatt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Artists who are interested in applying for one of our current mural projects are invited to visit our Call for Artists page.
