Groundswell seeks partners to commission public art to bring important issues and perspectives to light, engage marginalized and underserved communities, and activate neglecting spaces.

Partners come to Groundswell with a challenge. For example:

  • neighborhood group hopes to beautify its block, to inspire pride and a sense of possibility.
  • new principal wants to engage students in affirming their school’s values and identity.
  • city employee is charged with raising awareness of a changed public policy.
  • community organization would like to reach new participants to enroll in its programs.

Partners leverage the art-making process to solve these challenges and accomplish specific goals.


If you are interested in partnering with Groundswell, please provide a little information about your organization below, and a member of our Program staff will follow up with you.


If you are a property owner and you are interested in a Groundswell mural being painted on your wall, note that below.
