Free paint from Valspar Corporation!

The West Bank Business Association, in partnership with Valspar Corporation, will make free paint available for commercial projects on the West Bank from now until October 18 or until we distribute 100 gallons. Approximately 8–10 projects will be awarded paint products based on visual impact, public benefit, intended use, and benefit to those in need.

Requests can be for either interior or exterior paint and must be picked up from Valspar’s St. Paul location after approval. All color selections must be made from Valspar’s existing color line (color wheels available for viewing at the West Bank Business Association office). We cannot match other paint. Time from request to pick up should be approximately two weeks.

Projects that may qualify for a grant include murals or other visual impact projects. Projects that do not qualify include churches, routine city maintenance, non-permanent structures, or schools (with the exception of mural projects).

This program reminds us that collaboration shapes and improves our communities. These projects will provide our communities with an asset to be enjoyed for years to come. The West Bank Business Association and Valspar are pleased to support these projects that will improve the look of our corridor.

To apply: Fill out the application ( and email it to or drop it off at our office in the Southern Theater at 1420 Washington Avenue South.
