Artists painted this Tallahassee crosswalk in September of 2022.

Tallahassee’s Council on Culture and Arts (COCA) is seeking artists to help beautify the city’s crosswalks.

COCA is seeking local Tallahassee and Leon County artists to paint crosswalks along Saxon Street in the Bond Neighborhood this spring. The organization has $15,000 to pay artist stipends and cover the cost of supplies. The money comes from a Bloomberg Philanthropies grant.

The Greater Bond Neighborhood Association and the City of Tallahassee’s Parks and Recreation and Neighborhood Affairs Department are also partnering on the project.

COCA wants to hear from interested artists by December 9. Click here for more information.
