The Clinton County Arts Council announces the "Legendary Artists Passage" community mural project.
The mural project is structured to be educational while also aiming to promote local talent and engage the community by turning empty walls into huge public canvases and the results will have a lasting effect on the local St. Johns neighborhood. This mural project will take place under Business 27 in St. Johns along the Fred Meijer CIS Trail.
Eight groups and/or organizations, such as 4H groups, churches or schools can register by Nov. 30, 2018 to paint 8' x 10' sections on the south side of the underpass. Each group will select a historical artist from a list (such as Michelangelo, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh) to depict in the mural.
As a team; they will research the artist and sketch a design that represents that artist's timeline in history and/or style of work. The groups will work closely with contracted artist Tamara Brown to scale their design. They will have the opportunity to fund raise the cost of $400 each between now and April 2019. Mural installation will take place in June, after prep work is completed by volunteers.
Deadline for entry is Nov. 30
