Sylvania groups seek artists for downtown mural


The Blade/Andy Morrison

Artists are being sought to design a mural on a city-owned building.

The Downtown Sylvania Association Design Committee and the Sylvania Community Arts Commission seek a design embodying the spirit of downtown Sylvania and the Historical Village. The mural will be on the back of 5703 Main St.

An artist who lives in or is linked to the Sylvania area is sought. Proposals should consider the vibrancy of downtown Sylvania along with the flavor of the Sylvania Historical Village. Volunteers will transfer and paint the design onto the wall, projected next summer.

The entry fee for each design is $10, with the winning designer to be awarded $250. Artists may submit up to three designs. For an application checklist and design requirements, visit For information, contact the commission’s executive director, Jennifer Archer, at or 419-517‐0118.
