Call To Artists - Harold and the Purple Crayon

Hello, Bay Area artists!

The Oldsmar Library invites you to design and paint a Harold and the Purple Crayon themed mural for the Storytime Room!

We have a cardboard Harold we would like you to incorporate in your design (which can be seen in the bottom right photo of the Storytime Room collage below), and we would like your mural completed from start to finish between August 20th and August 29th, 2018.

Please reference the photos of the room to create a design that fills the space, and feel free to come by the library to view the room (just make sure there isn’t a Storytime Reading scheduled). The room will be painted bright white before the mural is to be painted.

Submit your designs via email to, as well as any information about your background/experience in mural painting - include a resume and website link if you have a website. The winner will be chosen by an art selection committee.

The winning artist will be given a total of $1200 as compensation for this project, half of which will be awarded up front and the other half awarded after the project is successfully completed. The purple paint will be provided - all other tools, such as brushes, rollers, etc. must be brought in by the artist.

The deadline to submit your design is Monday, July 16th.

Please feel free to email for any questions about this project!
