Experience Chehalis is planning a new mural in Chehalis. Through public art, we aim to not only beautify our community but to create the opportunity to experience art in daily life. Experience Chehalis is seeking creative, vibrant, and engaging design proposals for an outdoor mural along National Frozen Food’s processing plant wall adjacent to the sidewalk, facing West Street near the railroad crossing in downtown Chehalis. The business address is 436 NW State Ave. (See Item A below for mural location.)  Mural dimensions for the wall are approximately 168 ft. W x 76 in. H (height indicated is the highest point of the sloping wall). Artists are welcome to submit a proposal on their own or as a group.

Experience Chehalis and National Frozen Foods request that mural designs incorporate and focus on a collage of the vegetables that are processed at our National location including carrots, peas/pea pods, and corn. Other local vegetables and flowers can be added for interest.  In all cases, the mural must be congruent and appropriate with the vegetable industry in our area. Artists do not need to have previous mural experience but are expected to possess the skills and expertise to create a mural. Interested applicants are encouraged to visit the site before submitting an application. Compensation of $3,000 will be provided and the muralist will be responsible for all costs associated with the creation of the mural including materials, excluding paint. Experience Chehalis will provide paint and primer. The timeline to complete the mural will be 4-6 weeks after the selected muralist is notified.

  • Basic Information. Provide your name, mailing address, phone number and email.
  • Artist Profile.  Tell us about yourself! Submit a short bio outlining your experience as an artist.
