Brief Description

An artist or artist team is being selected to develop the first public mural downtown. The mural concept is for the artist to create mural representative of a vintage postcard that is engaging and representative of the community. The Public Art Committee envisions a historic postcard with the letters of Sylva filled with 5 of our community’s attributes. The Town of Sylva and Public Art Committee will consider other mural concepts that are representative of the community. If interested and schedule permitting, the artist may have the opportunity to work with art students at Western Carolina University to engage more of the community. Artists should indicate whether they are interested in this in the artist statement.
