Eureka Street Art Festival
This August 1st - 6th, the Eureka Street Art Festival will be bringing 11 new murals to the Bridge District - from the 101 corridor on the north side of town to the waterfront.
2022 Mural Artists
This year we are welcoming artists from across the country. The 2022 Festival Artists include: Jessica Cherry (Crescent City), Laci Dane (Weott), Mir de Silva (Eureka), Gina Elizabeth Franco (Greensboro, NC), Ben Goulart (Bayside), Aerosol Kingdom (Rochester, NY), Joshua Lawyer (Santa Rosa), Jose Moreno (Eureka), Kyle Sanders (Eureka), L Star (Los Angeles), and Tess Yinger (Eureka).
For the week of the Festival, these artists will be painting murals under the Samoa Bridge, along the Waterfront Trail, and throughout the 101 corridor on the north end of the city. The Samoa Bridge Mural Project will transform the piers under the bridge, as part of the Clean California Initiative, in partnership with Caltrans. The four bridge artists (Jessica Cherry, Laci Dane, Joshua Lawyer, and Kyle Sanders) are creating colorful cohesive pieces inspired by nature. Mir de Silva will be bringing her colorful style to a community mural, where everyone can add their own piece during the Block Party on August 6th. Aerosol Kingdom will be coming from New York to paint a massive wildlife mural on the side of Pacific Outfitters. And watch the walls of the hotels on the north end of town for many new colorful pieces as well!

The Eureka Street Art Festival’s mission is to create intentional, accessible art that enlivens public spaces, stimulates community revitalization, and attracts visitors to Eureka. Our long term aim is to recreate this event annually and continuously introduce new public art in Eureka. Excess funds raised by the Festival will go towards the maintenance of existing public art throughout the city.
