Artists sought for downtown mural

(Seguin) -- The Seguin Commission on the Arts is pleased to announce a call for artists to submit a proposal for a downtown mural. That's according to Seguin Main Street Director Kyle Kramm.

"The Seguin Commission on the Arts is appointed by city council and their role is to facilitate new public art, maintain our existing public art as well as promote local artists and bring in art from outside of Seguin and bring it in and showcase it to the community. One of the big projects that we've been working on for awhile is to get a new downtown mural and so we first had to talk about location and we decided the Aumont Hotel, the north wall of that building, would be the perfect location. It's kind of a gateway to downtown. It's on the northern wall so it won't get beat up by the sun and so after we chose the location, then it was time for us to kind of talk about the different subject matters that we'd want to feature on that mural. So, we threw around a couple of ideas and we really wanted to focus on historical aspects of Seguin and so the commission decided that they would like to highlight Seguin's founding by the Texas Rangers," said Kramm.
 
Kramm says the subject of the mural will be Seguin's founding by 33 Texas Rangers and their impact on the early days of Seguin.
 
The artist commission for the mural is up to $15,000. Details for the mural can be found on the city's website at seguintexas.gov.

Again, proposals need to be submitted by 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25, 2019 to the Seguin Main Street office at 116 North Camp Street or electronically to mainstreet@seguintexas.gov.
