Request for Proposals

Art Works Downtown requests proposals for an exciting mural opportunity in our Susan Kirby Place.

To be completed in fall 2020.


Missions

Art Works Downtown: To provide an environment where visual arts thrive for the well-being of our community.
Since the founding of Art Works Downtown (AWD) in 1996, the core purpose of the organization has been to enrich our community by encouraging artistic activities, educating the public, increasing appreciation of art, and strengthening the relationship between artists, arts organizations and the larger community. AWD provides an environment that is seeded in its historic building on Fourth Street but expands its reach to the broader community in Marin. More than a physical location, AWD creates a setting that fosters unity, belonging, collaboration, opportunity, and creativity – all elements of a thriving and healthy arts community.
