In response to the many mural inquiries, we have created a mural work outreach form: Mural Work Outreach
This form is to recruit mural work for artists that are currently out of work due to COVID-19 and create a continuous network.
If you’re a local business or property manager that would like to commission a mural or looking to donate supplies, please contact Lymarie directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a mural request form that we will be happy to email to you.
We hope this post finds you well. We hope that you are maintaining healthy physical social distancing and mental, emotional, and spiritual self-care. All of these things are necessary for us to make it through this very strange time of isolation.
The Board is still working behind the scenes to make sure that we are informed of the city and county’s orders as well as any resources that are available to us. We are working to apply for grants that are available to nonprofits. We are working hard to determine the right path for the FAC in these uncertain days.

Dear FAC Family and Friends,
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of the
Fremont Solstice Parade and Celebration at Gas Works until June 2021.
After assessing the current and projected data related to COVID-19 and hearing from King County Public Health and the Seattle Office of Special Events, the Board of Directors felt the wisest and safest choice for the FAC and the community would be postponement to next year.
Looking ahead, the Fremont Arts Council will need your support throughout this year, more than it ever has before.
How You Can Help:
We’re creating a committee that can take the lead in the outreach and collective process to make a virtual Fremont Solstice Parade and Celebration happen on June 20th. We will be looking for artists, members, sponsors, and volunteers as well as media content and video editors. If you want to help organize, create and be a part of this, email Henry at email@example.com.
We don’t want June 20th to pass us by wishing for what we can’t have. We may not be able to gather en masse but we CAN still celebrate the Solstice. We want to safely share Fremont Solstice with our families, our friends, our community and the world. We want to see your celebrations, your joy, your rituals, your art! We want to hear your stories! We may not be able to fill the streets but we can still share with each other our celebration at the return of the Sun!
Lastly, stay healthy and stay safe! We look forward to creating an online Fremont Solstice Parade and Celebration with you and we look forward to celebrating with everyone in person at Luminata on September 19th.
With Care and Hope,
The Fremont Arts Council Board of Directors
