CRE8IV Sponsors

Bringing mural art to the region presents a unique opportunity to engage visitors to the area which helps create revenue for businesses. Murals create an identity for the Rockford region and have the ability to add to the transformational pride of this area. Back in 2019 the community came together to sponsor the first round of murals which were completed by internationally-known and local artists. Flash forward to 2022 and we have completed over 30 projects with more already sponsored for completion in 2023.

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. 2022 Wall sponsors include:
