Miracle Garden Mural Contest

The Miracle Garden Mural Contest

An invitation to individuals and groups to create engaging public art

Columbus, Ohio: The Miracle Garden is pleased to announce a competition to design and paint murals at the Parcels to Places garden sites. The contest is open to individuals, groups and businesses. Winners will be awarded a $100 gift card and be provided with all materials to complete the project.

Parcels to Places is a pilot project which will showcase creative ideas and strategies for transforming Columbus’ vacant land into an asset that contributes to the community.  According to Leigh Anne Ward, Director of The Miracle Garden, “Entrants will create family-friendly, public art that will create beauty and spur conversation as an example of how vacant lots can be transformed from empty and unproductive lots into active and vibrant places.”

We invite individuals, teams, corporations or other entities to submit a mural proposal for either or both sites to transform these publicly held lots into a community asset.  There is no limit to the number of proposals an individual may submit.

UPDATE: The contest entry date has been extended. All entries must be submitted by: May 15, 2017.  Semi Finalists will be selected by May 30, 2017 with the final winners being announced by June 15, 2017.

Submissions will be accepted online, via email, in person, or by mail.
