Call to Artists:
Building a Better Boyertown's Mural Committee is seeking artists to submit a design only for consideration for the side of the Rita's Water Ice building. The design should express an overall positive message of some or all of the following themes: unity, peace, hope, love, kindness, community, and/or that Boyertown is a welcoming place for all people. The design should not contain references to businesses, people, recognizable names, and should not contain any copyrighted material or icons, etc.
The committee will vote and select the top three designs submitted, which will then be showcased for an online public vote. The winning design will be painted by a contracted professional on the building and the artist will receive $500 cash prize. Second and third place artists will also receive a prize of $200 and $100 respectively.
