The Junior League of Tallahassee (JLT), in celebration of its 60th anniversary, is seeking to partner with a local artist or regional team of artists to execute a large-scale mural within city limits.
“We have a tremendous opportunity to memorialize the women and acts of service that shaped our community through this mural,” says Samantha Sexton, JLT President. “But for the support from the Florida Department of State and generous donors, this would not be possible.”
The project is intended to celebrate female trailblazers and be a permanent, interactive attraction for the public and visitors to enjoy for many years to come.
“We can’t imagine a more fitting way to celebrate 60 increidble years of serving our community than by showcasing one of Tallahassee’s own talented artists,” says Nicole Sabol, JLT Member and mural project manager.
Three finalists will be selected by jury and invited to complete a formal request for proposal and to submit a design proposal for the mural.
