4’x4’ murals

Garford Arts Fest is also looking for artists who are interested in producing new large format pieces on large 4’x4’ (48”x48”) wooden pallets. A general theme for the festival is “Reusability” with a focus on re-purposing found objects for art so their large format pieces may incorporate this theme but are not required to do so.

If interested please contact gallery@blankslateelyria.com and mention in the email that you are interested in creating a 4’x4’ mural.
