The WPB Arts Committee launched the Orange Walls Mural Project with a call to artists in July 2013.  Submissions coming from around the world flooded the WPB Chamber of Commerce office, and in late August a jury of Chicago arts professionals selected four artists to each receive a $4,500 honorarium to complete a mural.
