Brief Project Description and Considerations:
  • The project will replace the current mural on the retaining wall on Stimson Avenue near East State Street.
  • The wall is 63’5” wide and 7’2” tall or 4’5” tall.
  • All work must be safe, tamper-resistant, and easily maintained, regardless of ease of public reach.
  • Artists should approach the project as a permanent installation when considering materials.
  • All work must be of an appropriate size and design so that it will not create a hazard for impaired pedestrians or use of maintenance equipment.
