  • Brief Description

    LexArts Inc. in association Maker’s Mark Distillery seeks artists to create a Verre Eglomise commissioned work that celebrates the history of handmade craftsmanship in Maker’s Mark bourbon and the importance of water and nature in the distilling process. This artwork will be a focal point in a new bar area of the Victorian Homeplace where guests begin their distillery tour experience. Our goal is to commission proposals by three experienced Verre Eglomise artists for the site with the expectation of realizing one of the proposals by Fall 2022. There is no application fee to enter.

    We anticipate that the project budget to be $60,000 - $100,000+. The budget is negotiable but must include travel, research, design, execution, insurance, taxes, site preparation and materials. Maker’s Mark will confirm the feasibility of completing the project within the estimated project budget and timeline during the design review.
