City of Tyler calls for muralist submissions for latest project
TYLER, Texas - The City of Tyler is seeking out three talented, local artists to brighten up the restrooms at Noble E. Young Park, Lindsey Park and Pollard Park.
The City of Tyler’s Public Information Officer, Adriana Rodriguez, says each of the three parks has its own theme and vibe.
The winning art will be selected depending on how well it goes along with the theme of each park.
Keep Tyler Beautiful hopes to add murals to all park restrooms in the future in order to add to the unique character of each park while beautifying the area and discouraging graffiti. Murals by local artists are already in place at Bergfeld Park, Emmett J. Scott Park, Hillside Park, Golden Road Park and Woldert Park.
The deadline to apply to be selected as one of the artists is September 16.
Submissions are also being accepted year-round for Beauty and the Box traffic utility box wraps. Artwork that is approved is added to the city gallery for potential sponsors to choose from. If selected, artists will receive a $250 stipend.
For more information, please contact Keep Tyler Beautiful Community Coordinator Erin Garner at KTyB@TylerTexas.com or (903) 531-1335. Follow the group on Facebook to stay updated on all upcoming art projects and opportunities to submit artwork.
