Asotin County Community Services invites artists to submit designs for a traffic safety mural, to be painted on the Asotin County Community Services building located at 549 5th Street, Suite A in Clarkston, WA.
This project provides a public space for artists to share their two-dimensional artwork with the public and beautifies the community. One selected artist will install a hand-painted mural on two building walls to communicate traffic safety and inclusion in our community.
The project is part of an educational campaign is to increase community awareness
of the need for drivers to yield for walkers and rollers to allow their safe passage on the Bridge and Diagonal Street corridors. These corridors have daily traffic counts between 10,000 and 18,000 vehicles daily with 6 crosswalks in less than one-third of a mile. The majority of accidents that involve pedestrians are a result of inattentive driving, driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, and failing to yield to pedestrians. As part of the campaign requirements, Asotin County Community Services is required to conduct Public Education and Outreach activities. A traffic safety mural is a way to meet portions of this provision in a way that engages the community, aligns with a commitment to the arts, and supports local artists.
Successful submissions will be those that communicate inclusive pedestrian safety for all
individuals in our community. Learn more about the call for artists, eligibility requirements, project timeline, and inclusion for individuals with disabilities online at www.LookOutAsotinCounty.com.
