CRE8IV: transformational...

CRE8IV Sponsors

Bringing mural art to the region presents a unique opportunity to engage visitors to the area and thus revenue for businesses. It helps to create an identity for the Rockford region and has the ability to add to the transformational pride of this area. In 2019 the community came together to sponsor these murals which were completed by internationally-known and local artists. Now in 2022 we are excited to bring back CRE8IV to continue the vibrancy and uplift our region for our community and visitors.

Beginning in June, local and visiting artists will transform tired and dull walls into beautiful works of art in the Rockford region.

2022 Sponsors & Supporters

CRE8IV is made possible because of the support, help and funding of the partners who recognize the long-term impact of this community-building, arts-infused collaboration. For the third year, Painters Union District 30, Local 607 has joined together with RACVB to make CRE8IV possible with their efforts to prep and prime all walls prior to artists arriving. Without their support, CRE8IV would not be possible. Sponsors to date include:
