Getting Started

An Original Art Mural Permit is required for murals that are installed using the standards included in Title 4 (Original Art Murals) and the Mural Administrative Rules. On-site work on the mural cannot begin until the permit is issued. 

Use the Mural Permit Application to apply for the installation of an Original Art Mural.

In addition to the application, you will need a site plan showing the location of the building with adjacent streets and a building elevation drawing of the space to be occupied with a mural.

When you have your application completed, contact Kristin Cooper (503-823-7547) or Brandon Rogers (503-823-7597) to schedule intake. Please complete the intake before you schedule the required neighborhood meeting or at least 21 days before the meeting is held. At intake you will receive a posting board for the neighborhood meeting. This sign must be posted at the site for at least 21 days before the meeting is held.
