Create SOMA Murals

The LEATHER & LGBTQ Cultural District through our Arts and Culture Committee supports activating murals and visible public art throughout our South of Market neighborhood.  We want to help support our artists and enhance the beauty and culture of the District.  (See existing murals here.)


Building Owners / Business Managers

If you own or manage a building within the District with a wall that could support artwork of any kind, please get in touch with us at or click on the link below  

We will provide you with portfolios of local community artists whose work you can review, we can assist with obtaining the needed permits and approvals, and if needed, assist in raising funds.

I Want Artwork Displayed in my Storefront


We are working to promote the creation of large-scale murals at key locations in the Cultural District. 

We invite you to prepare and submit a portfolio of your existing work for consideration. We will offer three portfolios to each business owner/manager, who will select an artist to work with.  

Samples may be photos of murals you have created, or reproductions of other kinds of artwork.

Please prepare your portfolio in PDF format, containing at least three samples.

Upload your portfolio
