Big Picture Initiative is a grassroots nonprofit group of dedicated volunteers who believe that art has the power to change our community. We are supported by private donors and corporate sponsors in our region who want to help us achieve our four key pillars.

Our Four Pillars


Portrait Artists – Call for Entries

Big Picture requests submissions for an exciting mural opportunity at Presidentials Barber Atelier, at 2016 N.
