Current Project: Downtown Mural & Public Art, Phase II




Mural/Public Art Downtown - Phase II

The Start of Public Art in Beatrice

Beatrice's first outdoor mural will begin to be painted in September 2020.  It will be located at 604-606 Court Street right beside the Holly Theater in downtown Beatrice.  This project is getting started thanks to the support of the community, people like you.  During last year's Big Give Event the community donated over $2,300 to the project.  The Gage County Foundation has given another $2,000 and the City of Beatrice has pledged $2,000.  These funds ($6,300) have allowed us to commission and start the project which will cost $8,000.  This mural project is just the beginning of art project planned for downtown.

The budget for the current mural project underway:

$2,856 - Artist Labor

$500 - Insurance

$3,595 - Materials

$450 - Image License/Rights

$600 - Mural Concept Work

Total: $8,001

 

Why We Want to Bring Public Art to Our Community

Beatrice is growing and positive things are happening!

As part of our effort to see continued improvements and meet the needs of the community, public art has been identified as a need for Beatrice.  This will be a highly visible improvement and will provide new ways to engage with residents and visitors alike!

Main Street Beatrice has been working to explore different forms of public art and plans to get started this upcoming year!

 

What we want to complete in Fall 2020 to End of 2021:

  • 1 community mural
  • Vintage-styled advertising brought back in select locations - Budget $1,500
  • A start on Alley Art & String Lighting - Budget $4,000

We plan to see art that is fun & engaging, and that complements recent downtown improvements and gains!

 

Our Goal This Big Give

Our goal is $5,500. This amount of funding can:

  • Provide for the remaining $1,700 in costs on the mural
  • Commissioning of 2-3 vintage styled murals - Estimated $1,500
  • Provide a start on the funds needed for alley art - Estimated $4,000

 

Help us get this project started!

 

Your support will allow Main Street Beatrice to go beyond the mural project and see additional art projects as part of our phase two 2021 Downtown Art Projects.
