Arte Libre VA 

Arte Libre VA, in partnership with the City of Winchester and the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley, presents a unique opportunity for local and regional BIPOC and emerging artists!


This spring, Arte Libre VA is facilitating a series of PARKING SPACE MURALS IN OLD TOWN WINCHESTER along Piccadilly Street, and we'd love for you to participate! 

We are seeking proposal submissions from now until March 28th.


  • Designs must be 4" by 10" (or 8" by 20"), which is the size of the parking spaces

  • Designs must be limited to a simple 10 color palette (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, pink, brown, black, and white)

  • Remember the asphalt is a black/grey, and can be used as an element of the design

  • Selected designs will be family friendly (not explicit)

  • A panel of art minded folx from Arte Libre VA, the MSV, and the City of Winchester will choose the designs that will be painted along the North side of Piccadilly Street in April and May

  • Artists whose work is chosen will be awarded a $200 stipend after drawing the design in the space on the community painting day

  • Deadline for submission is March 28th by 11:59pm
