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 by Aug. 31.
