JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The Downtown Jonesboro Association is now accepting mural proposals from artists interested in creating a signature piece for the city.

Artists from around the community are encouraged to submit their work.

According to a press release from the association, the mural should be distinctive through the use of design and color and acceptable to be viewed by people of all ages.

The Fearlessly Brilliant initiative is overseen by the Downtown Jonesboro Association Design Committee, which operates through funds provided by grants.

The association says the goal of the initiative is to increase pedestrian traffic in the downtown district and enhance the community experience.

Two mural projects have already been completed and the Downtown Jonesboro Association hopes to fill two other mural spaces soon with this request for proposals.

“We are proud to bring not just one, but several new murals to Downtown Jonesboro,” said Steven Trotter, chair of the Downtown Jonesboro Association Design Committee. “The entire committee is so excited to see the submissions resulting from our call to artists. We have so much talent in our local community. With this type of art, you don’t simply look at it; you step in front of it and interact with it.”

Artists interested in creating a mural must submit the application and any additional materials by Dec. 2 to be considered.

The application can be found on the Downtown Jonesboro Association website.
