The Portland Mural Initiative is a volunteer-run organization, supported entirely by grants and donations. We believe that it is really, really important to pay artists for their hard work and talent. The bulk of the money that we raise goes directly to paying artist fees. A small percentage goes to paint and supplies, and towards the community dinners that accompany each artist talk.
Thank you for considering a donation!

The Portland Mural Initiative aims to bring contemporary art into the public spaces of Portland and its’ surrounding areas. We will work with emerging and established artists that have a strong connection to Maine, to create innovative murals and architectural interventions. We also aim to facilitate a dialogue between the artists and the communities in which the murals are located, through public meals and artist talks.
