  • what a great idea. i love they are getting local kids involved.

  • Great idea, but considering the time that it’d take to paint the mural plus materials the artist should get the $1,000 and the $500 donated.

    • The contest is for the design, not the actual execution of the mural.
      The linked PDF says: “Bar Deco will work with the winning artist to devise a strategy to complete the mural based on the artist’s experience and will bring in outside support to execute the vision if needed. All supplies necessary to complete the mural will be provided by Bar Deco.”

  • Please someone make a donkey kong concept incorporating the fire escape.
