MURAL CONTEST FOR PALMORE SKATE PARK
Do you or someone you know have a passion for painting?
Artists are being encouraged to send concepts for a skateboarding mural to be installed at a Tuscaloosa skate park.
The Tuscaloosa County Park & Recreation Authority has asked artists for proposals for a mural, 10-feet high and 26-feet wide, to adorn the sides and back of a ramp at this summer’s newly opened Palmore Skate Park.
The authority’s public relations and marketing manager Becky Booker says designs must be family friendly and skateboard-related, but otherwise have no guidelines.
Booker says authority director Gary Minor has made it a goal of his to inject more art into the county’s parks.
Officials say submissions should include visual renderings on paper, along with written descriptions. They must be submitted in-person or online at tcpara.org by Aug. 31.
