Enhancing Our City Through Public Art
For centuries, public art has been a way to bring communities together and create gathering spaces for residents and visitors alike. With Roseville's last public arts project coming to an end over a decade ago, our community is long overdue for a creative invigoration.
The Roseville Mural Project is an initiative led by Blue Line Arts, in close collaboration with the Downtown Roseville Partnership and its property owners, to bring new public art of high artistic quality and enduring value to the city of Roseville. This project aspires to trigger our imagination and create a deeper sense of community in the city of Roseville.
The project involves three unique initiatives: the creation of five new murals in the Downtown Roseville District during the Spring of 2019, a special Veterans Mosaic Mural, and Youth Mural Camp.
Five New Murals for Downtown Roseville
The primary focus for the project’s inaugural year of 2019 will be on implementing five fresh new mural designs on the external walls of businesses in the downtown Roseville area by spring 2019.
Veterans Mosaic Mural
In January of 2019, Blue Line Arts hosted three free weekend workshops for women veterans with the support of the California Arts Council. The art they created has been installed, and is currently on display, at the entrance of the Lohse Apartments, a new affordable housing option on Vernon Street.
Youth Mural Camp
With the support of Placer Community Foundation's Giving Circle, Blue Line Arts is hosting a free spring break art camp for at-risk youth. During the camp, teens will complete a mural of their own with guidance from positive role models and a professional mural artist.
Talented Mural Artists
We had an amazing turnout of creative, vibrant and engaging design proposals for two-dimensional, outdoor murals from talented artists both far and wide. After careful consideration, we've made our final selections. Artists will be announced soon, so please check back often.
