In the spirit of the depression-era WPA, Aurora Public Art is asking local artists to design signs depicting COVID-19 PSAs and community encouragement.

Public Art is seeking up to 20 original designs that communicate safety measures and/or encouragement in the face of challenges presented by the COVID-19 outbreak. Selected PSA's will be printed on yard signs to be placed in several locations around the city. Designs also will be released electronically, both for social media and as printables for businesses and homes.


Artists of all levels are encouraged to apply but preference will be given to Aurora residents. Accepted artists will receive a $100 stipend.

Specific design requirements and suggested content are included in the RFP, which may be viewed at:

Proposals are due at noon April 19. Artists may submit their proposals through an online application form at
