Current Project: Murals/Public Art Downtown
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 improvemnt 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 spring!
What we want to complete in 2020:
- 1 to 2 community - centric murals
- Vintage styled advertising brought back in select locations
- A start on Alley Art & String Lighting
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 conceptual drawings by an artist.
- Pay for the materials for 1 mural project.
- Provide for payment of artist for 1 mural project.
- If there are any remaining funds they will go toward other art projects already being planned for completion in 2020!
Help us get this project started!
Your support will allow Main Street Beatrice to take on additional art projects as part of our Phase One 2020 Downtown Art Project.
