Building a Better Boyertown Announces A Call to Artists

Building a Better Boyertown (BaBB) is sponsoring a mural design competition for a cash prize.  We are seeking artists to submit a design only for a public mural competition.  Building a Better Boyertown’s Mural Committee will vote and select the top three designs.  The three designs will be open to public voting through BaBB’s website. Cash prizes for the top three designs will be awarded ($500 first place, $200 second place, $100 third place).  The winning design will be painted by a contracted professional mural painter.

We are seeking a design that will 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 winning mural will be painted on the Rita’s Water Ice building, 309 E. Philadelphia Avenue, Boyertown, PA 19512 (on the wall facing Franklin Street).  The wall is approximately 17 feet high by 24 feet wide.
