Sacramento Republic FC is partnering with Wide Open Walls for a second consecutive year to host 'Paint the Park' at Papa Murphy's Park during the August 7th match against Las Vegas Lights FC.
Paint the Park celebrates Sacramento art and brings together local artists to paint their designs at Republic FC's stadium.
Ten artists will be selected to paint their designs on wooden panels that will be displayed at Papa Murphy’s Park during Republic FC’s August 7th match. All selected artists will also receive four tickets for that night’s match to share with friends and family.
Up to four finalists will be selected for a chance to win the Grand Prize. The Grand Prize winner will be selected between August 8 and August 18 through a public poll and will receive a $1,000 cash prize, a VIP experience at a future Republic FC match and be prequalified to participate in the 2020 Wide Open Walls Mural Festival. The deadline to submit your artwork is July 24th, so start creating now!
