Maple Valley Creative Arts Council
Submission deadline: 6/20/2021, 5 PM

The Maple Valley Creative Arts Council is pleased to announce our SECOND community mural project! We are seeking design proposals from artists, designers, non-artists alike. All – especially teens – are encouraged to submit!

Partnering with the City of Maple Valley, King County Parks & Recreation Department, the Maple Valley Historical Society, The Maple Valley Community Center, and the Lake Wilderness Arboretum Foundation, the Maple Valley Creative Arts Council (MVCAC) will make local and regional history stories interactive and publicly available through history gathering, recorded oral histories, digital virtual tours, and a public mural culminating in a 2021 community participatory event.

The History of Maple Valley: A Mark In Time. This site-specific outdoor community artwork will help inform the public about the history of Maple Valley while engaging members of the community in creating this public art piece and all who utilize the trail.

Because of the trail’s unique location and the diversity of age, class, race, and ability among residents, visitors, priorities for the mural design are: inclusive, based on the history of Maple Valley, welcoming, peaceful, limited palette, and containing paint-by-numbers elements for members of the community to paint.
