These are the core values we want expressed in our murals in the MainStreet district. Through art we will tell our story to the world and to ourselves about where we have come from, who we are, and where we see ourselves going. Our goal is to express these values each season with a theme that encompasses one or more of these values. To learn more about this season's theme click the button below.
A public mural program designed to support and encourage specific themed murals such as: Awareness of Grants' Local Heritage, our Natural Assets, Local Businesses, and New Ways of Looking at our Town. This program aims to provide a 50% match up to $1,000 (or whatever amount is gathered through fundraising) and assist in project management of the desired mural.
Residents, businesses, and property owners in the MainStreet District are eligible to apply. If you are unsure if you are in the district, take a look at our district map.
Grants MainStreet will match dollar for dollar up to $1,000 for expenses relating to: paint, paint supplies, paint equipment, safety equipment, and hiring of the artist. Expenses not allowed are food & water, building repairs, labor outside of the artists' efforts.
Grants MainStreet is opening the FALL 2023 application August 1st, 2023. You can download our application below
For a long time, our community vision has been set upon the past. Looking to the "good old days" of the mining industry, the Route 66 Fever, or even returning to the Carrot Capitol of the world. Like most things, we need to move on from our past and grow into our future. That's where "Postcards from the Future" comes in.
"Postcards from the Future" will encourage artists to transform landscapes, buildings, and streetscapes into a vision of Grants that is aspirational. Rather than focusing on what is behind us; we want to imagine and conceptualize what is ahead of us. Artists are encouraged to reach out throughout the year to enter into the MainStreet artist directory to be notified of upcoming mural opportunities.
That is totally okay! We welcome any interested party to apply to this program for any mural want or idea you have. We will take a priority in choosing individuals who have the want to utilize our theme, but in the event that our funding allows more than one mural or that we don't have an interested party for the intended theme then we will look towards the remaining applications.
