RFP: Macon Mural Festival

Event Dates: September 13 - 15, 2024

Entry Deadline: April 1st

Acceptance Notification: May 1st


The goal of the 2024 Macon Mural Festival (MMF) is to brand Macon, GA as a vibrant and creative destination. This year, we are looking for artists to participate in this 3-day event. Each participating artist will be given a prepped wall to complete their mural and a $2,500 stipend plus $500 for supplies. The Festival will also provide lodging for all artists. Murals can be open theme but must be approved by the business that sponsors the wall.


To kick off the festival, artists will arrive in Macon, GA on Thursday, September 12th. The festival will host a kick-off breakfast on Friday, September 13th, and then artists will have all day Friday and Saturday to complete their murals. All murals will be unveiled on Saturday, September 14th at our MMF Celebration Party.


One artist will be selected as our featured artist in residence. The festival will provide the featured artist lodging, the largest wall, and a higher stipend for their mural materials. This artist will also receive the most press for the event.


The Macon Mural Festival is hosted by Macon Arts Alliance. Macon Arts Alliance fosters support for the advancement of arts and culture in Central Georgia. We strive to be an innovative leader of a thriving regional arts community. We value strategic partnerships that strengthen the diversity and vibrancy of arts and culture for tourists, residents, artists, businesses, and civic organizations.
