The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles (SJMQT) proposes to create a public mural on the front exterior of the Museum's building. The SJMQT Mural Project will enhance an unused space on the building that is vulnerable to graffiti. In addition, the mural will help pedestrians and other people from the community showcase what people may find in the Museum. The Museum is located in the SoFA neighborhood, downtown San Jose's arts and cultural district, and a mural will add to the artistic aesthetic of the community. Currently the Museum's exterior does not portray the exhibitions and artwork inside, and the Museum would like to use the mural to make the Museum more inviting for the public, as well as embracing and appreciating public art for all to enjoy.
