NATIVE MURAL PROJECT /
The Native Mural Project will be unveiled during the 2020 Eureka Street Art Festival. This project was created in partnership with the Native Cultures Fund, the Humboldt Area Foundation, and a committee of local Native leaders.
Four Local Native artists (Alme Allen, Carl Avery, Melitta Jackson + Julian Lang) have been invited to participate in the first year of project, given space on one continuous wall, creating a large, impactful piece. The Festival is always striving to make Eureka's public art scene more diverse and inclusive. This large mural will be painted by local Native American artists to ensure their perspectives are represented in the local public art scene. We are grateful of the support of the Native Cultures Fund to bring this project to fruition.
A committee of local Native leaders are leading this project to ensure that it comes from the communities that it is designed to benefit. While the ESAF team is responsible for coordination, legwork, and background tasks of making this mural a reality, the committee will coordinate community outreach and be making all artist selections.
