Bicentennial committee announces mural funding program


MADISON COUNTY — The Madison County Bicentennial Legacy Committee is accepting proposals for the creation of three murals depicting themes highlighting the communities, people and history of Madison County.

If chosen, funding of up to $5,000 to assist in the creation of each mural may be awarded. One mural each will be located in northern, central, and south Madison County locations.

In a press release from Madison County Chamber of Commerce CEO/President Clayton Whitson, chairman of the bicentennial committee, proposals “will be judged on design, creativity, location, and how closely the mural represents Madison County or one of its communities.”

“We are hoping to see murals which depict an important historical event, place, or some other feature that truly represents Madison County and its people”, Whitson said in the release. “Ideally, the murals will celebrate our history, and mention the bicentennial in the artwork.”

Any person or organization is invited to send a proposal to the committee at [email protected] or 1106 Meridian St. Suite 109 Anderson, IN 46016.

Proposals should include a sketch or other graphic depiction of the proposed design and are asked to be submitted not later than May 31 of this year.

Awards will be announced soon after.
