Delta Neighborhood Call for Muralists

The Delta Neighborhood Association has received grant funds from the Everett Cultural Arts Commission to paint a landmark mural at the I-5 underpass north of exit 195. This is a high traffic corridor with lots of space to welcome people to the City of Everett and Delta Neighborhood.

From the historic SS City of Everett "Whaleback" steamship (commissioned in 1894), to the Snohomish River, we are hoping to capture the essence of our diverse community, which has deep roots in Everett's working-class and maritime history.

Please submit samples of your portfolio to the Steering Committee at
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out.
