The city of Las Vegas invites artists ages 18+ to submit their qualifications to paint an original mural inside the new design center at the Historic Westside School, located at 350 W. Washington Ave.

The mural theme will incorporate the history of the Historic Westside with a focus on building a bright future.

Three artists or teams of artists will be selected by an independent evaluation panel and asked to create and present a design proposal for an original, site-responsive mural that embodies the theme of the history of West Las Vegas, with an eye towards building a bright future. Selected artists or teams of artists will be compensated $200 for the design proposal presentation.

Artist selection will be based on the following criteria:

- Artistic excellence through the quality of past work
