Our guides are picked for their passion for our work and the arts. They receive extensive education in the technical aspects of mural-making, the history of our rise from the Anti-Graffiti Network, and the many complexities of our community engagement. They complete hundreds of hours of training annually to stay current on new projects and routes and often have information about our work that is not available publicly.
Many of our guides are artists and educators themselves, though, we've got a firefighter, an urban planner, a lawyer, and a TV personality, to name a few. We carefully match each guide to the group's needs, and many of our guides develop a following over the years. Interested in becoming a Mural Tour Guide? Fill out the form below to get started?
