Berkley DDA Mural program
Mural projects are an investment in cultural capital that goes far beyond tourism, improved aesthetics, increased business traffic and building occupancy, and eradication of blight. Murals are an investment in a city’s unique identity and its cultural cohesiveness, and contribute to its public art. Murals can also provide an avenue for involving youth and others in artistic expression.
To better serve these purposes, the Berkley DDA has created the Berkley DDA Mural Program. The Berkley DDA Mural Program is administered by the Berkley DDA and its Public Art Committee. Applications for new outdoor murals are reviewed by the Public Art Committee composed of community stakeholders and artists. Murals approved through this program are exempt from the city sign code and become part of Berkley’s public art collection.
