Mural Contest
Call for Submissions


Help us add some charm to our exterior wall!

Black Cat Yoga is opening up a mural contest for our exterior, west facing building wall. Freshly painted and in great condition - this is a perfect blank canvas for your idea. What are we looking for? A local artist to help us create a visual hot spot in our historic town.

What do we envision? An instragrammable mural that will inspire passerby. A way for them to interact, share + create conversation. Something that reflects the vibe of our studio, our community + our town. We are all about connection + inspiration. Help us create a mural that showcases that mission.

The sky is the limit.

We recommend you take a class with us. Review our site + social media to get a feel for our studio. Get inspired from there + let your imagination run wild. Although we prefer something monotone, we are open to any color scheme or design.

Winner will be chosen by a small committee + the studio owner. As our building is in the historic district of Libertyville, final design must be approved by the Historic/Appearance Review Commission + the Village Board.

$1800 materials stipend (reimbursement with receipts)
