Fat City Mural Project
Fat City Friends and Mural Selection Committee have chosen the Arts Council of New Orleans to coordinate the murals that will be painted in the neighborhood. These organizations believe the murals will attract visitors and businesses to the area which have consequently benefited the local economy. Fat City Friends, Jefferson Chamber of Commerce and the Jefferson Parish Council want to support and celebrate this inspired energy by continuing to promote the arts locally and beyond. The project is being funded by Council District Tourism Funds from Councilwoman Cynthia Lee-Sheng.

The murals will be located on the highly visible walls of restaurants, retail stores, residential locations and various other Fat City businesses spread throughout the community. The murals, though not related by a common theme, will create a visual identity that unifies the neighborhood, catches the attention of residents and visitors, and inspires creative thought.

The Arts Council is currently compiling a list of potential mural artists from our Visual Artist Registry and from the proposals already submitted to Fat City Friends through the initial RFQ process. If you would like to be added to the list please contact Morgana King via email by August 15, 2014: mking@artscouncilofneworleans.org
