San Pedro Arts District - Call for Artists

San Pedro Arts District

San Pedro, CA

The San Pedro Waterfront Arts District, in collaboration with City of Los Angeles Council District 15, and the LA Department of Cultural Affairs is searching for artists willing to submit concept sketches for an outdoor mural on the east wall of 454 West 6th Street, along the Lilyan Fierman Walkway.


Theme:  Unexpected Pedro” – the San Pedro Waterfront Arts District appreciates artwork that evokes a sense of intrigue, whimsy, discovery, engagement and connection, set against the backdrop of our gritty glamour. We want this mural to attract visitors to the walkway and be a highlight of the Arts District. The 2D painted mural is intended to energize the newly renovated Lilyan Fierman Walkway and is a transition onto 6th street, with access to the 5th street parking lot. Consideration will be given to artists who design their submissions with the location/vista in mind, as well as the imagery from the Warner Grand Theatre. Artwork depicting religious, overtly sexual or political themes will not be allowed.
