Burbank Mural Project Guidelines

As part of TAG’s 70th Anniversary celebration, we have partnered with the Burbank Cultural Arts Commission to give back to our beloved Burbank community.

For this project, we are seeking to paint four (4) murals at the Burbank Animal Shelter, located across from the Burbank Empire Center.

We anticipate completing this project in November 2022, and are currently seeking submissions for mural designs. Volunteers will be needed to help paint as well!

  • Must include the TAG logo/icon in the mural. The logo can be incorporated into the image (i.e. on a t-shirt).
  • Should be family-friendly and G-rated.
  • Must not include copyrighted characters.
  • Should be animal-themed (can include animals hosted by the shelter: dogs, cats, rabbits, turtles, guinea pigs, birds).
