A fresh initiative designed to infuse art into our community
A2AC Murals is the culmination of pairing downtown building and business owners with local, regional, and national artists who transformed the building walls into spectacular murals—providing the community and visitors the opportunity to experience and enjoy these large, vibrant works of public art in Ann Arbor and the SE Michigan area.
To make this dream a reality, we crowdfunded in July of 2020 and 2021 to raise $50,000 each year through Patronicity. These funds paid the artists a living wage and covered other mural expenses like equipment rentals, paint, permits, etc. Once this goal was met, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) matched our $50,000 each year—doubling the impact of all donations leading up to the goal through their Public Spaces Community Places program.
A2AC Murals is made possible by the Lucie & Larry Nisson Art in Public Program.
