Bloomington Creative Glass Center (BCGC) is in search of an artist to develop a mural design for the outside of our 229 Grimes Lane location. The artists will work with BCGC to create an original design that will then be enlarged and transferred to wooden panels to be painted by the community. The chosen artist is invited to help paint the mural as well, but is expected to provide final touch ups after the mural design is filled in by the community. The panels will be installed on the west and south sides of BCGC, alongside the Grimes entrance to Switchyard Park.
