A Visual History of Allentown Mural Contest and Community Celebration


The Allentown Park Hotel invites local artists to participate in a mural competition inspired by the history of Allentown as a theme. And we are giving them the Allentown Park Hotel as their canvas! These murals will allow the story and diversity of Allentown to unfold and come alive through art.

This mural contest will showcase the rich history of Allentown, giving artists invaluable exposure in bringing the aesthetic beauty of Allentown to life, tracing the rich heritage of the area while looking forward from a treasured past to a colorful future. Artists are encouraged to interpret Allentown’s history through their own creative expression. Entries must be received by April 6, 2018.

The community will have the opportunity to participate in a community-wide block party at the Allentown Park Hotel, on Saturday, April 28, 2018, the last day of painting, and visitors will have the opportunity to vote on Facebook for their favorite mural. The contest will be open for online voting starting at the Community Party on Saturday, April 28 and ending at 11:59 PM on May 4, 2018.
