About Us
Established in 1983, Artmakers Inc. ( is an artist-run, politically oriented community mural organization that creates high quality public art relevant to the lives, work and concerns of people in their neighborhoods. Artmakers has no paid staff and monies are generally raised on a project by project basis. Artmakers advises community groups wanting to create murals by providing on-site visits, design workshops, and production advice—often at no charge. Its Pre-Professional Training Program exposes young people to the highest possible aesthetic standards while teaching valuable skills–both artistic and job-related.
We Participate Because
In addition to the commissioned work individual Artmakers muralists obtain on their own, members as a collective annually undertake effort a volunteer mural project that addresses timely issues.
