Visit McMinnville “Foundations” Mural Project

Call to Artists

Deadline: July 16, 2021

PROJECT OVERVIEW:

The “Foundations” project consists of conceptualization, preparation, and execution of a Mural
on the west facing wall of the Yamhill County Housing Authority building, facing the train
tracks.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES:

  • Create an approachable art piece attractive to locals and visitors
  • Add visual interest and culture to a colorless area
  • Be highly visible from a distance
  • Improve wayfinding between McMinnville’s historic downtown and the Granary District,
    and encourage foot traffic between the two areas across the train tracks

We wish for the Mural to be representative and respectful of the history of the McMinnville area
and create a sense of place. This location runs parallel to train tracks and directly across from a
historical train station, and it is the halfway point between our historic downtown core and the
Granary District (an up-and-coming makers’ district full of wineries, tasting rooms, restaurants,
breweries, and shopping). It is a prominent location in the heart of our City, located at a
crossroads between our history and our future. It will serve as an important part of the landscape
for years to come. Submissions should reflect the themes above.

NOTE: This project is the second of a series of Mural installations planned over the coming 3-5
years and is intended to be a first in a series leading from the Historic Downtown to the Granary
District.
