The creation of murals can have social benefits for entire communities.

They often become focal points and symbols of communities and inspire reminders of the cooperation and dedication that made their creation possible. Murals help make OKC a more vibrant and artistic place!

In an effort to ensure aesthetic quality, design integrity and to determine that a mural is appropriate to its setting, architecture, and social context, Oklahoma City requires that a mural, regardless of private or public financing and ownership of property for said mural, be reviewed by the OKC Arts Commission and receive permit approval by The City’s Development Services Department. Locations in Design Review Districts require a Certificate of Approval before a permit can be issued.

Incomplete mural applications will not be accepted for review. Applicants are strongly encouraged to review these documents, the mural handbook (PDF) and make an appointment with the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs prior to submitting an application for mural review.
