The Mural Festival wishlist

It takes more supplies than you might suspect to pull off a mural. Each project to install a piece of public art needs everything from paint and brushes to cleaning supplies and drop cloths. So imagine how much stuff we're going to need to create 10 new murals in the city of Harrisburg during the 2017 Mural Festival!

Below is our wish list of everything we're going to need for the festival. If you are in the position to donate or lend us one of these items, please send us an email! In-kind sponsorships for the festival are available. In-kind sponsors will receive benefits such as recognition for your support on festival materials, printed promotion in TheBurg magazine, or invitations to exclusive VIP events during the festival.
