you are bold and all kinds of beautiful

It’s a message ESP feels strongly, and one we’re ready to share with everyone…

Announcing the ESP Mural Contest!


We’re calling on all artists to share our mission visually with a mural on the ESP gym. We are currently accepting submissions for a 15-foot-tall by 10-foot-wide mural on the ESP gym. The winning artist will receive a $500 prize and an award for their artwork at ESP’s largest event of the year, Big Hearts, in February.

The rules are pretty simple:

  • The mural should embrace and include the words of the slogan above: You are bold and all kinds of beautiful.
  • Designs should be colorful, geometric, and include the ESP logo
  • One entry per person or group
  • Designs must be turned in by noon on September 9
  • Designs should be accompanied by a paragraph explaining the design/theme and the planned production process
  • Designs must be submitted below and be the unique work of the artist
  • The winning artist will receive supplies and the assistance of an ESP artist to complete the work by October 10

ESP will select the artist from these submissions. The winning submission will be announced on September 10th, and the art will be unveiled on October 10th in celebration of 4 months to Big Hearts.

This is a unique opportunity to share the ESP vision. It’s also an incredible audience to share your artwork with: the 2,500 people in attendance at Big Hearts, the friends and community members who join us at the ESP building every day, and the broader Athens community!
