Call for Entries for the Great Minerva Banner Mural Contest

ArtsinStark and the 20/20 Vision Minerva Committee are installing banner murals on buildings in downtown along historic “Market Street” (Hart Mansion to West Line Street) to celebrate the work of Minerva area artists.

We are inviting Minerva artists who currently live, or were born, within five miles of Minerva, OH to send in paintings or drawings for consideration. Up to five entries will be selected to be part of the first series banner murals. The banner murals will be installed in the spring of 2016. Each winning artist will be awarded $250 for permission to use their image on one of the banner murals. Winning entries will be determined through a “blind” process where a professional judge will select the winning entries based only on the images provided, without any of biographical information on the artist submitted with the entry.

Any Minerva area professional, amateur, or student artists are invited to submit up to three images for consideration. All submissions need to be received by email or by hard mail by 5 pm on December 31.
