Artists sought for large-scale murals
The Ames Community Arts Council seeks artists to create large-scale murals intended to demonstrate the creative spirit of the Ames community and showcase local and regional artists. Individual artists and teams of artists may apply. Applications are due Wednesday, July 31, with the selected artists notified by Saturday, Aug. 3. The goal is a mid-October completion. The inaugural two sites for the council’s Back Alley Gallery series are:
- Morning Bell Coffee Roasters, 111 Main St. (20′ x 20′). The staff is hoping for a mural that’s colorful, inspiring and urban.
- Loading dock area of Stephens Auditorium (18’x 20′). Iowa State Center staff are looking for a vibrant mural depicting the diversity and culture of the performing arts as Stephens Auditorium celebrates its 50th birthday in September.
