Straight Up Art, a public art initiative by Town Green District, opens its third mural season to the public. With two site locations this year, SUA seeks artist proposals that showcase the vibrant communities of New Haven.

Straight Up Art values cultivating downtown neighborhood pride, growing the local creative economy, and creating a beautiful, walkable Downtown environment for all. During this two-round selection process, prospective artists are encouraged to walk the Downtown neighborhood streets where the walls are located, learn about the local history, and appreciate the context in which they are wanting to contribute their creativity. Site-specific and interactive murals are especially welcome.

2nd Round: RFP (request for proposal), selected artists will be provided stipends to create work specific to the mural sites
3rd Round: In mid-May final artists will be chosen based on their RFP submissions; artists will work on finalizing designs and planning to begin painting in June
