Tampa Walls Launches Mural School

Mural School is a Creative Placemaking project in partnership with CLRTY Agency, Mergeculture Gallery, Tampa Walls, and many Bay Area non-profits - focusing on Cultural Programming, Community Engagement, Creative Economy Development, Social Impact and Equity.

Inspired by artist Matt Callahan's legacy, Mural School continues the tradition of shared learning, skill sharing, and community development in the arts through collaborative public art projects. It partners with local non-profit organizations and the community to create public art installations that educate, empower, and inspire. 

The first Mural School program was at Broward Elementary school and featured artist Detour.

Tampa Walls partnered with the local non-profit Tampa Regional Artists to complete the first three murals of the program.

See all of the projects on the Tampa Walls Mural School program page.

Tampa Walls! Teams up with Current Initiatives: 2022 non-profit Partner.

Tampa Walls! is very rapidly making waves in the Tampa Bay Region, as part of an international series of art festivals that have taken place in over 17 other countries all over the globe since 2010, the festival aims to bring world-class artists to the bay area, and inspire generations to come.

The Tampa Walls! team has partnered with Current Initiatives, a local non-profit whose aim is to improve lives through community action. We believe that art has the ability to inspire change. In an age where art programs are cut from schools, we want to be sure that future generations understand that being an artist can be a fun, and inspiring viable career.

Our mission aligns with Current Initiatives, as they aim to create Hope Dealers in neighborhoods throughout the country, we feel that public art exists to do the same.

Our non-profit partner allows donors a way to donate to our cause, while also having double the impact in alignment with Current Initiatives, in our communities. If you want to get involved in the 2022 inaugural festival, please get in touch with us!
