For the second year, the Downtown Chambersburg Inc. (DCI) Design Committee is coordinating a mural project that will add color and creativity to the public spaces of downtown Chambersburg. Area artists are invited to create an individual mural that will be displayed at various outdoor locations in the downtown area. Our presenting sponsor is Corey L. Alleman, LMFT.
“Art belongs in downtown. This project is a creative way to engage the community and to make art more accessible to everyone – as it should be,” said Noel Purdy, president of DCI, an affiliate of the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce.
Prepared canvases (1/4” primed plywood) will be available free of charge at the Greater Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce beginning June 13 and will be 2-by-4-feet in size. The deadline for submissions is August 1. The installation will be unveiled at a First Friday Event on September 5. The murals will be judged and awards will be announced at AppleFest on October 18. Community members of all ages are encouraged to participate.
Guidelines for work:
Must be the artist’s individual work in design and execution.
Work must be able to withstand outdoor display for about five months; two coats of marine grade primer are highly recommended.
Work must be suitable for all ages.
Committee has the right to determine the suitability of work.
All mediums and themes are welcome.
Supplies sponsors include Pathways Counseling, Gateway Gallery Auction, Nitterhouse Masonry and Hardware Supply, John H. Myers and Son, Lowe’s and Carter Lumber.
Submissions will be photographed and posted on the Downtown Chambersburg Facebook page.
