Many issues come into play when attempting to bring
a mural project to the public. It takes an abundant amount of cooperation from a world of individuals in order to successfully
complete the project.
If you or your organization is in the market for such a project, many factors need to be considered.
If the proposed mural will be in the public eye, many cities will require
City Counsel approval.
Mural projects often require the artist painting on very high equipment
for long periods of time. The platform area below the location must be able to withstand heavy lift equipment or scaffolding
for long periods of time.
Depending on the image concept, size, location
and cooperation from involved parties, mural projects can take several weeks or several months to complete.
Along with the artist fees, painting materials, lift equipment, permits and any city
required insurance policies, the project will need funding in the thousands.
In the fall of 2008,
the Visalia Police Activities League contacted Rudy to paint the PAL logo on the sides of their newly acquired
building. The logo is a silhouette of an officer, a little girl and boy. For this project, PAL wanted to take it a step further.
They wanted the silhouette of the figures brought to life. They also wanted an actual Visalia Police uniform on the officer
in the image.
