Capilano University seeks mural artists

To mark Capilano University’s 50th anniversary, the University has teamed up with the Vancouver Mural Festival to help transform 10 prominent exterior walls on its North Vancouver campus, and one at kálax-ay, the Sunshine Coast campus, into full-colour painted murals. The murals will welcome students and the community to CapU’s campuses and serve as lasting legacies of the University’s 50th anniversary.

We seek artists who can show us a portfolio of their work and are available to paint their mural in late August/early September. A connection to Capilano University would definitely be a bonus.

Do you know any fabulous muralists? Prospective artists can apply here.

The deadline to apply is July 15, 2018 at 5 p.m.
Please note that only resident artists of the Sunshine Coast will be considered for the kálax-ay project.
