Stone Mountain, GA — The city of Stone Mountain Downtown Development Authority is looking for an artist to complete a mural.

To find the RFQ, click here. The mural will be located at 1054 Main Street.

Applications are due by Sept. 23 and finalists will be selected on Oct. 10.

“The Downtown Development Authority mural project seeks to bring beauty to what would otherwise be a cold, blank wall and celebrate the energy and diversity of the local area,” the RFQ says. “Given the wide range of potential visitors and diverse cultures of the residents that travel down Main Street, the mural should celebrate diversity, mission, and values. The mural should highlight the city of Stone Mountain rich cultural history while developing new expressions for the current times and enthusiasm about its future. This mural shall transform this wall face into a vibrant, colorful, and welcoming element to the city of Stone Mountain.”

The DDA hopes the project will be finished by Dec. 2.
