The appointed mural surface incorporates 2 warehouse buildings occupying 3 blocks in the East cluster of Sundance Square. Like a clock, there are 12 designated mural areas. Murals will eventually envelop both buildings as murals meet. There will be no linear end, and the goal of the project is for the works to feel fluid, connected, and organic.  The murals will be painted one at a time in a clockwise sequence, with an emphasis on artist collaboration.
