WAUWATOSA — The City of Wauwatosa is searching for artists to create a mural for their mural arts program.

The city announced it was searching for artists to create a mural that would be installed on a shipping container located in Hart Park.

The Wauwatosa Tourism Commission is sponsoring the mural installation and the project is funded by hotel tax revenue.

“Public art enhances a city, attracting residents and tourists to experience Wauwatosa in a different way,” said Melissa Weiss, Director of Administrative Services for the City of Wauwatosa in a press release. “We are thrilled to be bringing murals and hopefully world-class muralists to the gem of our park system, Hart Park, this year."

The artist chosen for the project will be required to install a part of their proposed mural at the Tosa Tonight concert on July 22.
