Mobile Mural Program – apply today!

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on December 3, 2022

Artists! Remember to apply for the mobile mural project before Sunday Brooksville Main Street is inviting artists to participate in their sixth round of Mobile Murals, and create an original piece of artwork to be displayed in Downtown Brooksville in the spring.

Mobile Mural Program – apply today!

The theme for this round is ”Grown in Brooksville” in honor of our rural community. Noteworthy – one artist will be selected to do a permanent mural on a building in Brooksville, instead of a mobile mural! Application Deadline: 12/04/2023

Project Details Theme: “Grown in Brooksville”

This round, we focus on our rural community. Artist renditions of this theme may encompass animals, agriculture, gardening, or the people and families behind it all– past and present. Whether you choose to depict our famous rolling hills and green pastures, paint a portrait of children growing up on Main Street, pay tribute to your favorite farm or native florals, or create a scene portraying a day in the life of your favorite cattle rancher or friend with a green thumb… we truly look forward to seeing your submissions for our sixth round of mobile murals, “Grown in Brooksville.”
