For questions about this RFP, please contact Yami Duarte, DCA Public Art Division, at: with subject line “DCA Mural Works.”

Request for Proposals: Muralists

The Department of Cultural Affairs is seeking muralists to propose their own historically significant murals located in the City of Los Angeles that need conservation. The mural conservation proposal must include a paid youth apprenticeship opportunity for young people from the mural’s local neighborhood. Selected mural conservation projects should also depict
the social justice theme(s) of the mural, notable cultural figures, or important histories that are meaningful to residents. Preservation of these historic murals will serve as cultural markers, connect them to the social justice themes of today, and inspire multiple conversations between the past and the present.

Virtual Q&A Workshop

DCA hosted an optional virtual workshop to answer questions from muralists interested in responding to the RFP prior to submitting a proposal. Those unable to attend, a recording of the workshop is available here:
