Description:
A mural is a painting, or other art media, such as tile, applied directly on a wall, ceiling, or other large permanent surface OR large art work permanently mounted for display to such surfaces.
Expanded Description:
Murals are significant in that they bring art into the public sphere. Historically murals have often made political statements or served to depict the popular life of a culture, religious ideas, or merely as an outlet for artistic expression. In the contemporary urban setting, murals often appear on the sides of otherwise unsightly buildings, showing the life of a city neighborhood. Wherever these works of art appear for public viewing, we seek to document them and display them for others to enjoy and visit.

Murals that may have a commercial component are welcome as long as they also have serious artistic merit. Billboards and strictly commercial signs usually will not meet these requirements.

Large works of art that are permanently mounted on a building or other structure will also be considered for inclusion in this category. Since it isn't really feasible to define "large" with actual dimensions, this will remain somewhat subjective, but a minimum of 32 sq. ft. (3 sq. meters) is suggested. These will be evaluated individually on their own merits.

Most of these public murals will be for outdoor display, but some murals that are indoors may also be considered. These must be on public display in public buildings, such as government buildings, libraries, etc. Generally those inside of museums, churches or schools will not meet the requirements. In all cases, they must be substantial works of art, not mere decorative paintings. Please don't try to push the envelope on this!
Instructions for Posting a Murals Waymark:

1. Originally obtained GPS coordinates. Ideally this should be at the actual site of the mural itself unless access is limited, by a fence, for instance, in which case you may take your coordinates from an acceptable viewing area. If this is the case, please state it in your description.

2. Photographs: Since this is a category for visual art, photos are important. A waymark may be denied if low quality photos are submitted. We don't expect professional photography, of course, but photos that are greatly underexposed, distorted or otherwise fail to give an adequate representation of the work of art may be reason for denial.

At least TWO original photos are required!


NOTE: Very few murals can be adequately represented with just two photographs. Most require several. There must be one photo showing the building or surface where the art appears in order to give perspective on its size and location. One should show the entire mural, or major portion. If a mural is too large to be included in a single photo, either because of size or viewing angle, a series of photos may be submitted. Other photos should show various details of the art work.

Each piece is different, so requirements are different, but do your best to show of your work of art. If there is a signature, a close-up of it is highly desired, as are photos of descriptive or dedication plaques and signs.

Waymarks with insufficient or inadequate photographic presentation may be declined with a request for further visual documentation.


NO copyrighted photos will be accepted -- unless they are yours!

3. Description: Include as much information as you can about the mural -- its historical or cultural significance, artist, location, subject, etc. If your research turns up some good sources, please share them with us.

At the very least, provide a written description of what you SEE. What is the subject of the mural? What does it look like? What size is it? Where is it located? Pretend the viewer cannot SEE the mural and then describe it to that person.

LOCATION: The building or structure must be identified. Be as specific as possible. If the name of the building cannot be determined, then a more general description will suffice, such as "side of a furniture store" or similar description. Then, tell where the building or structure is located.

MEDIUM: The variable for medium should include the materials used to create the mural. Usually this will be paint (specify if you know the type) and the surface material, such as wood, stucco, concrete, plaster, brick, etc. but may be tile or something else.

TITLE: Please include the name of the town/city and state or country in the waymark name. You must use the following standard format:
My Interesting Mural - Ctiy, State

SPECIAL NOTE: While the details outlined in our category description, and the requirements listed in the posting instructions, cover the MINIMUM elements and standards for all waymarks in this category, each waymark will also be evaluated by a volunteer reviewer for overall quality and appropriateness. If a reviewer deems that there are deficiencies in some aspect of the waymark, the waymark may be either declined or accepted with request for changes and/or additions in either content or format.

Each waymark will be evaluated on its own merits. We will endeavor to be reasonable and flexible while maintaining the quality standards for the category. If there is a disagreement, try to work it out with the evaluating officer, or appeal to the group leader, but we reserve the right to accept or decline a waymark based on our best judgement.

LANGUAGE NOTE: We recognize waymarking as a global hobby and welcome waymarks from all countries. Because of our international scope, we also acknowledge ENGLISH as our lingua franca. English will create the highest level of accessibility globally. All waymarks must have at least a short description in ENGLISH. We encourage bilingual and multilingual waymarks, but one of the languages must be English. We have volunteer translators to help.

Relying on software or internet based translators, such as Babylon and Google Translate, may NOT yield accurate translations that are intelligible. Use these only when there is no alternative. Although we do not expect grammatical perfection, a waymark may be declined if there the English language is not understandable.
