ARTSWIN exhibits and calls for artists
Old National Bank Mural Projects
Old National Bank, with the help of the Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana, has two exciting mural projects to which artists may submit their ideas.
“Program Specifics: The mission of this project is to create a sense of excitement and civic pride in downtown Evansville by introducing new art projects on the exterior of Old National Bank buildings.”
Here are the two proposed mural locations:
ONDS building at 101 NW Fourth St. in Downtown Evansville
(the northeast wall facing Fifth Street)
The mural will cover a large percentage of the painted brick wall facing the Fifth Street City Parking Garage. ONB will consider options that include painting the entire wall a new base color, and will consider artwork that encompasses some or all of the windows on that side.
ONB Hub at 123 Main St. in Downtown Evansville
(the southwest corner of the building)
The mural will wrap around the corner of the building, and could be as tall as all 3 floors, no wider than 15 feet in either direction.
The deadline submission is 4 p.m. (CST) Jan. 12, 2021.
