NOTICE: Failure to comply with the Permit System in Art Alley may result in sanctions to include fines, arrest and jail, and refusal of future permits.
· Artists are required to have a permit to paint in Art Alley. If more than one artist is working on the same piece, each artist must have a permit. School/group art projects are required to apply for a group permit. Painting without a permit is not allowed.
· Painting permits are site specific. Artists with permits are authorized to paint only in the area(s) designated on the permit and map. Roof top access, meters and utility boxes are strictly off limits.
· Respect private/public property. Buildings in Art Alley are privately owned. The alley is part of the City right of way. Clean up after yourself and others. All used cans, caps, gloves, and other painting materials must be taken with you and disposed of off-site. Damage to property could result in fines.
· Climbing on dumpsters is prohibited. Dumpsters are leased and paid for by property owners. Standing on dumpsters will cause damage which you are responsible for.
· Profane, obscene or offensive imagery or language is not permitted. Artistic content in the Alley must remain appropriate to all ages. We encourage creative and clever expression and advocacy, but it must be expressed through those parameters.
· Art Alley is a working alley. Delivery trucks and private vehicles utilize the Alley throughout the day, and building/business owners and renters use the Alley to access their parking areas. Avoid painting near cars. Be CAUTIOUS of overspray, (spray paint particles) from spray paint cans. Wind can carry overspray to nearby vehicles and property from several feet away and cause damage. You are responsible for damage to private and public property.
· You are an ambassador. When painting in Art Alley, you are a representative of, and an ambassador for, a very unique space. Treat the building/business owners and the public with respect and courtesy.
