Mural Program for Property Owners
In the last 20 years, several Florida cities have utilized a mural program to improve the aesthetics of older buildings in their downtowns and warehouse districts. Miami, Hollywood, Lake Worth, and West Palm Beach are a few examples. Miami's Wynwood District became a national tourist attraction, propelling the careers of many up-and-coming artists.
Murals can inspire collaboration and pride within a community as well as be catalysts for economic growth. As an artist, you will work closely with the City of Boynton Beach, community constituents, and local business owners to celebrate the past and imagine the future of our city.
Matching Grants for Murals
To encourage murals in the City, matching grants for excellent murals on privately-owned buildings and sites will be made available based on available city funding. All these murals must be guaranteed by the building or site owner for a minimum of five years with maintenance and repair if necessary. Murals cannot be signs for a business and must follow specific criteria.
As funds are available, the Art Advisory Board will review applications for mural grants. The grants can support a maximum of 50% of the mural costs up to a maximum of $5,000. The other 50% could potentially be matched by the Community Redevelopment Agency's (CRA's) Commercial Property Improvement Grant Program.
