BERLIN—The Berlin Parks Commission needs an experienced
muralist to help repaint the Stephen Decatur Park mural.
The Parks Commission has opened a contest for students
grades 9-12 to gather original images to be incorporated in the new mural.
The muralist will assist the judging committee in selecting
images, assess the wall where the mural will be painted, create a final design
using the winning images, provide estimates on materials needed and provide any
other information related to the project. The muralist will also get the wall
ready to be painted with the final design.
Once the mural design is complete, volunteers, including
students, will help paint the mural, hopefully in spring 2014.
Those interested should submit a proposal, including
listings of locations and photos of existing work. The deadline for the
muralists’ proposals will be 5 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 30.
