Visit Eau Claire is bringing back the ColorBlock program for 2022.
ColorBlock is an exhibition of original mural art, free and accessible to the public 365 days a year. Murals will rejuvenate an overlooked part of the city, provide opportunities for artists, and create a new destination for locals and tourists alike.
Artists are selected through a committee after their applications are reviewed. All selected artists will be provided a monetary stipend for their work, and all of their materials will be provided to them. All sponsorships donated to ColorBlock directly support Sculpture Tour, a local nonprofit dedicated to enhancing our city through free public art. The mission of ColorBlock is to incubate and inspire visual arts and to revitalize and re-energize parts of downtown that need some love.
