Hoodoo Mural Festival: A Celebration of Public Art in Downtown Amarillo
The inaugural HOODOO Mural Festival was held in 2019 after a visionary group of Amarillo citizens came together with the idea of creating an outdoor public art gallery that added to Amarillo's downtown landscape in a vibrant and unique way.
Over the span of a week, local and non-local artists transformed five walls in downtown Amarillo into beautiful works of art. The murals have become one of the most talked-about features of downtown and are starting to attract visitors from across the country.
After taking a year off due to the pandemic, the HOODOO Art Foundation board is extremely excited to announce the 2021 festival, which will be held on October 2. Artists who are interested in leaving their mark on Amarillo are encouraged to apply now.
The HOODOO Art Foundation is in the process of becoming a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. The Foundation depends on private donations and grants to pay the artists and purchase supplies to bring their vision to life. If you'd like to support our mission and the artists, please click here to donate.
