The goal of the RiNo Mural Program is to continue working with a diverse group of local artists to facilitate monthly installations around the district so that each piece may receive proper recognition and the work that is done is more intentional on time and placement. All artists are paid for their work. Providing reliable stipends in an unpredictable time helps keep art and artists at the heart of RiNo.
We are here to help artists and creatives make a living at what they are passionate about. Initiatives include a curation program, the RiNo Mural Program, and Artist Opportunities posts on the website.
Artists cannot survive on exposure alone. We encourage our visitors to support our artists by buying work in the district. District artists have a variety of work from higher end pieces to more affordable ones for the new collector. Our best advice is talk to our artists, ask questions and buy what you love! There are plenty of ways to shop:
Find an Artist:
Step 1 - Budget: Artists are like any other profession and need to be paid for their time. When looking for an artist think about your project and the budget you are willing to spend. Exposure is a bonus, paying the artist for their time is most important.
Step 2 - Search: Utilize our database of RiNo Artists to start the search on what you might be looking for. (i.e. Public Art, Murals, Ceramics, etc.) We also suggest attending First Fridays and touring our district wide murals to find an artist that piques your interest.
Step 3 - Submit a Call: If you can't find what you're looking for in our database just fill out the "Submit a Call" form and we'll post your request on our website to help find what you are looking for.
If you're an artist looking to be included in our database and are located or work in the district, your first step is to join as a member.
