MainStreet Oceanside Design Committee is requesting your support for the Oceanside Mural Initiative (OMI). The program is intended to elevate the art culture in Downtown Oceanside and give our locals and tourists a place to visit and enjoy with their friends and family. The OMI program is volunteered driven, facilitated by MSO, and is taking full liability for this project. However, we need your support to ensure that the muralists are compensated for their work and to allow us to maintain the murals in your community.
We are asking community members to pledge at least $5 (the price for a cup of coffee) to our GoFundMe campaign in hopes of raising $10,000. MainStreet Oceanside will match up to $10,000 to roll out phase 1 of the OMI program. We hope that you can see the value in improving our image by allowing murals to create our story and promote Oceanside as an arts destination!
About Oceanside Mural Initiative: The Oceanside Mural Initiative (OMI) seeks to install ten curated public art murals over the course of three years in the community of Downtown Oceanside. OMI is a community driven initiative, and will integrate key partners in the Downtown Oceanside area. Through this Initiative, Oceanside will become a destination for public art, will create a model by which Oceanside and other communities can fulfill community-driven arts initiatives, will act as a medium for education/community outreach, and will help to define Oceanside as a community whose identity is built upon and driven by the arts.
Brief Overview: Strategic community partners, will have a vital responsibility in achieving the project objective and goals. From site selection, to marketing, curating, to political interface, and maintenance, OMI intends to nurture the creation of high quality public art murals, and to do so in a connected community context.
