Deadline extended for artwork submission for Hillside Park Art Wall
Keep Tyler Beautiful is extending the deadline for local artists to submit artwork for the Hillside Art Wall to Friday, March 10.
The Keep Tyler Beautiful Board will be selecting art pieces that spark creativity, happiness and hope while still representing the Tyler community, East Texas or Texas. The board will announce the winning art pieces on Friday, March 17, and artists will begin painting the panels in early April. Keep Tyler Beautiful will be able to refund up to $200 in paint and supplies for each of the nineteen panels.
The 200-foot wall, built in 2019, currently features 19 original art pieces painted by local artists. The wall was repainted by 19 new artists in 2021 and will continue to feature new artwork every other year. The art can be viewed on the southeast side of the Hillside Park, located at 1111 E. Erwin St.
Artists must submit their artwork and application via email at KTyB@TylerTexas.com.
