Fort Morgan Times Article

Here is an article that was in the recent Fort Morgan Times......

Local artists are invited to submit mural designs as the Morgan County Area Arts Council begins plans for a community mural to be placed in the downtown Fort Morgan area as part of a beautification project.

The mural will be located on the wall of a city-owned shop building between
Main and State Streets just north of the railroad tracks. The building is behind City Hall and the mural will face the tracks.

The City of Fort Morgan is paying for the materials for the mural.

After the mural is selected, local residents will then be encouraged to participate in the actual painting of the mural. Further details on that step of the program will be released soon.

Artists who wish to submit mural designs should request guidelines from Ann Iungerich of the MCAAC at 867-2363,, or

Designs should be submitted in full color to a specific proportional size which is available from Iungerich.

People doing the mural will receive 12-x-12 inch panels and will put their artwork on those panels. The overall wall is eight feet high and 60 feet long.

Mural designs may be submitted at the Fort Morgan Area Chamber of Commerce office at
300 Main St. in Fort Morgan.

The deadline for submissions is March 15.

Selection of the winning mural design will be made by a panel of judges from the chamber, the arts council, the Fort Morgan Downtown Business Association and the city of
Fort Morgan.
