Summer Public Art Projects

As part of our American Graffiti: from the Streets to Canvas exhibit, staff and community members are coordinating efforts to create a series of public art projects that will bring new street art to downtown Everett. 

The first project is a large scale mural on south wall of Schack Art Center, featuring the artwork of world famous Graffiti artists, APEX and NEON. The artists will work on June 23-27th. Funding for the APEX and NEON mural is from the Community Foundation of Snohomish County Arts Fund. You can find out more about APEX and NEON here. 

The second project is an Everett-centric mural on California Ave, on the north wall of El Paraiso Restaurant. Artwork for this mural was created Seattle based design firm, Invisible Creature. Work on this mural will begin after the fourth of July holiday. Funding for this mural is provided by Skotdal Real Estate, City of Everett LTAC fund, and the Everett Cultural Arts Commission.

The third project in the series is a mural featuring the artwork of an Camano Island based artist, Blake Taylor. The mural features a dragon motif and will be painted near the eastern entrance to Schack Art Center. Work on the mural is expected to start in July. 

The fourth project in this public art series involves commissioning local artists to create artwork banners that will be hung throughout downtown Everett during the summer months. This project is sponsored by the Community Foundation of Snohomish County Arts Fund. This project is expected to happen in July and August. 

 The American Graffiti: from the Streets to Canvas exhibit will allow the community a rare public viewing of over 80 spectacular graffiti originals held in a private collection.  This exhibit gives art patrons a rare and up-close look at this genre of work. Never before has an exhibit of street art of this magnitude been held in the Pacific Northwest. Find out more at our exhibit page here

JAG ArtWorks, an art supply store and gallery adjacent to Schack Art Center, will be holding a partner show in conjunction with this exhibit. Their show, West Coast Graffiti Exhibition, will also run June 25-September 5, 2020 and will feature over 30 artists from as far South as Los Angeles. Their Exhibition includes artists of all ages and skill levels, most with 15+ years of experience.
