Public Mural along SPRINTER Corridor
For Southern CA artists

The City of Vista's Public Arts Commission is pleased to announce a Call for Artists for a mural to be located along the Sprinter Corridor, south of the Mar Vista Drive crossing, at the eastern entrance to the City.

The selected mural will be painted on ten Dibond panels that will be attached to a wall. Each panel is 4 feet by 10 feet for a total of 400 square feet. The chosen artist will receive compensation of $6,700.

The theme for the mural is "Welcome to Vista." Suggestions for possible subject matters are the depiction of Vista's history, climate, cultural arts, and/or recreational opportunities.
