  • Brief Description

    The East Dundee’s Arts Council is soliciting proposals from qualified artists or team of artists to provide design and implementation services for an exterior mural and public art project within the downtown near the Fox River Trail. In collaboration with a downtown building owner, the Arts Council intends to commission a mural on a highly visible downtown building façade. The mural design should enhance the exterior of a brick building located in the heart of the Village’s Culinary District and is exposed to patrons of local restaurants, shops, users of the Fox River Trail, and attendees of the Village’s community events. The wall is approximately 57’W X 16’H.


    The subject matter of the mural must encompass one or a combination of the following themes:

    • A celebration of East Dundee and what makes it unique
    • Nature Surrounding East Dundee (i.e. Fox River, nature, etc.)
    • History of East Dundee (i.e. railroad)
