About

Wide Open Walls, the producer of Sacramento's annual mural festival in August, is raising money to create a mural that will be a tribute to director Greta Gerwig and her incredible artistic vision - Lady Bird. Show your love for public art, placemaking, and this celebrated film by helping to fund a new city landmark. 

With her film's main character Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson, Ms. Gerwig has created a memorable and iconic symbol of Sacramento. Wide Open Walls is commissioning Maren Conrad, a gifted and well-known Sacramento artist, to create a Lady Bird mural at 901 16th Street. The project will launch during the week of the Academy Awards, when Lady Bird is up for several awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Original Screenplay. 

Lady Bird is a love story about the relationship between a mother and daughter, between two best friends, and between a young woman and her hometown of Sacramento. The movie has brought both national and international attention to our city, showcasing its unique charm and beauty. This mural will be our thank-you to Lady Bird's creator. 

We'd like to thank our sponsors Visit Sacramento and Sacramento's Vice Mayor Steve Hansen for the initial funding to get this project started.  Now we need your help to ensure its completion.

 The Lady Bird mural will  be a precursor to some of the incredible surprises that await our region during the 2018 Wide Open Walls Mural Festival, taking place from August 9th through the 19th. 

Art For All!

Risks and challenges

The weather may influence the length of time it takes to complete this project, but it will not prevent it. We have approval from the building owner to proceed with the mural and permits are not required since it is private property. We have already received the support and sponsorship of Visit Sacramento and Vice Mayor Steve Hanson, but need to raise additional funds to cover artists' supplies, a lift, permanent lighting, and mural preservation.
