The Sidney Area Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture has developed the downtown enhancement mural project to beautify the Sidney downtown area through the use of murals. Murals will enhance the aesthetics of the city, promote civic pride, increase pedestrian traffic and extend public art to new areas and unexpected places while creating an attractive environment and allowing art to be introduced to the public in a creative and inventive way. The program goal is to bring beauty to downtown Sidney.
The focus of the first mural project will be on the South wall of the Centre Theatre located at 211 S Central Ave. The required dimensions of the wall are approximately: 31 feet wide by 24.6 feet tall. Artists and groups must submit an application complete with a bid inclusive of all artist’s fees, paints and materials along with the design template to be considered. The deadline for applications is October 1st, 2021.
Interested artists, art organizations, or schools must complete the Sidney Mural Project application online. The application can be found below. Please reach out to the Sidney Area Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org or (406) 433-1916.
