Call for Artists: Mural for Welcome Center

Main Street Pittsboro, in partnership with the Town of Pittsboro, will add a mural on the side wall of the new Welcome Center on Hillsboro Street in Pittsboro.

Artists are invited to submit designs for the artistic embellishment of the brick wall (approx. 32′ wide x 25′ height) which is on the right side of the building. The mural will be visible while heading south on Hillsboro Street towards the courthouse. There will be a small outdoor seating area located in front of the mural.

Interested Chatham County artists should submit designs with the following criteria in mind:
– Submit as many designs as you wish that are individual, original designs.
– Submit details on how artistic design would be executed, i.e. paint, vinyl sheathing, stenciling or other method.
– Design motifs may be of nature, historic, whimsical, or other type, which reflect the history, character, or natural surrounding environment of Chatham County. Do not submit designs related to individual people or organizations.
– Concept, labor, and materials to finish the project must not exceed $7,400.

The Main Street Pittsboro Design Committee will select from all entries the designs that will be used. Please submit concepts and designs to the committee no later than May 1, 2020. The goal for completion of the mural is June 30, 2020
