We love Renton and we want your help!

As we continue our final push on opening our flagship retail location on 3rd Street, we are looking for any and all ways we can celebrate being a part of the Renton community.

First step- We have a beautiful blank wall that lives under our Chief Dragon Officer, Erasmus and it is begging for some joy and celebration through artists like you!  Macadons is sponsoring a mural contest to bring it to life.

On August 22nd Macadons is giving the community a “sneak peak” of our new Renton Flagship location.  We will host an “open house” during Renton River Days. This is where and when we will kick off the Macadons Macaron Mural Contest.

We are looking for artists that feel the joy and connection to Renton!

Are you?

  • An artist that has always want to or already painted a mural
  • Do you believe that Renton is a vibrant community that deserves to be celebrated?

Perfect! You are just who we are looking for!

 

Phase One “Community Casts their Vote”

During Renton River Days, (July 22nd & 23rd) Macadons invites you to visit our Renton location to vote for one of three mural themes. We also welcome your thoughts on how that theme could come to life.

Here is how it works:

  • The community is invited to come by our Renton Flagship location during Renton River Days
  • Upon arrival, you will be greeted with a delicious sample and will be asked to vote for one of our three themes:
1) A Friend for Erasmus
2) Filled with Joy
3) Who is Renton / Community Suggestions
  • Part of casting your vote is the submission of any ideas you have on how the theme could come to life
  • Macadons will tally the votes and determine the theme of our mural

Phase Two “Call to Artist”

Macadons will work with the Renton Arts Council to engage the artist community.  A “Request for Proposal” (RFP) will be sent out the artist community. This RFP will provide artist with the opportunity to submit their artwork for the mural. 

More details on the “Call to Artist” will be made available on this website once the theme has been determined after Phase One.

 

 

Phase Three “We Have a Winner!"

The winning artist will be awarded $10,000 (all mural hard cost will be covered by Macadons) and they will bring their mural to life at Macadons’ Renton location.   

Further details, description of hard costs, and contest rules will be made available on this website once the theme has been determined after Phase One.

Until then, please join us during Renton River Days and vote for the theme you would like to see come to life and try our macarons.  They are filled with the joy we plan to add to the Renton Community, our new home.
