6th Annual Salem Arts Festival Mural Slam – Applications

May 12

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 3 weeks that begins at 12:00 am on Wednesday, repeating until May 12, 2021


The City of #SalemMA’s Public Art Commission and the  Salem Arts Festival are teaming up to present the 6th annual Salem Arts Festival Mural Slam (SAF Mural Slam). This dynamic live painting event engages the public with creative producers and contributes to downtown Salem’s cultural vitality. Salem Arts Festival is a project of Salem Main Streets and Creative Collective.
In the interest of visually enlivening this creative hub for residents and visitors alike, the City of Salem and Salem Arts Festival are inviting artists to contribute downtown Salem’s reputation as a destination for world-class, inspiring, and engaging public art.
The site for the 2021 SAF Mural Slam is Artists’ Row, a historic marketplace that has evolved into a vibrant corridor of galleries and public art at the heart of downtown, located at 24 New Derby Street. Selected SAF Mural Slam artists will have the opportunity to present their work alongside the skilled artisans of Artists’ Row and will benefit from sharing their work with the roughly one million visitors who come to Salem each year. Live painting is subject to COVID regulations; in the event that painting cannot be done in person, the City will allow the selected artists to create in more distanced private and/or public locations.
Deadline for Applications: May 14, 2021
Notification of Selection: May 20, 2021
Salem Arts Festival Mural Slam: June 5 & 6, 2021
