Letter: Be a part of mural project

The theme of the mural project will be “What Makes Grand Forks Grand.”

There is a mural project being planned for the wall of The Bargain! Shop in the Boundary Mall in Grand Forks.

The theme will be “What Makes Grand Forks Grand,” and artists are being invited to paint five, 1.2 metre by 2.1 metre murals which celebrate the people of Grand Forks and the activities which easily identify our community.

Artists are asked to submit 12 x 21 depictions demonstrating theme, colour, etc. for selection by June 15, 2015, with the professional installation date set for July 31.

An honourarium will be paid for the five successful submissions.

If you have comments, questions, suggestions, please contact myself, Jane Bradley, representative of the mural group, at 250-442-2713.

Jane Bradley, Grand Forks
