Each year, the Arts Quincy George M. Irwin Arts Awards recognize those who have shown exceptional dedication to increasing arts and cultural access throughout the community. Business support, volunteers, individual artist/teachers, and of course, arts organizations, keep the arts in Quincy and Adams County, Illinois alive and thriving.
Action Brown County, in partnership with Arts Quincy, are requesting proposals for a mural to be painted in Mt. Sterling, Ill. The deadline to submit a proposal is Friday, April 30 by 12 pm.
The location of the mural is east of the Veterans War Memorial which is located at the corner of South Capitol Ave. and East Main St. in the heart of the town’s business district. The mural would be painted on the west façade of a chiropractor’s office. The area measures approximately 120’ long by 20’ tall (representing 2,400 square feet of paintable space.) It is a huge neighborhood canvas for the installation of public art.
The theme for the mural is a vibrant scene representing a sense of community that enhances the downtown area. Ideas might incorporate colorful farmer's market and community themes, rural lifestyle or children's ideas. The committee would like the mural to be a backdrop for photo opportunities for visitors and residents alike. Patriotic elements may be appropriate, but a completely patriotic mural is not requested. A playground will be built near this location, so something colorful and playful will be appreciated.
The mural must be completed by September 3, 2021.
