Apply To Be A Muralist at the The Hoodoo Mural Festival
One of the great things about Amarillo is its amazing art all over the city.
Over the last 5 years, the art of Amarillo has grown into something beautiful. Instead of blank walls, murals have appeared on many buildings and roadways here in our great city.
One of the reasons for the murals is the Hoodoo Mural Festival. The Hoodoo Mural Festival was founded by Amarillo native, Andrew Hall. When he came back home to Amarillo he noticed a lack of art. The Hoodoo Art Foundation was created. The mission of the Hoodoo Art Foundation is, to inspire communities to unite through public art, urban beautification, and creativity.
The first Hoodoo Mural Festival took place in 2019 and it was an amazing success.
The Hoodoo Mural Festival is a day full of live music, food, kids' fun, and art. A celebration of art in Downtown Amarillo.
