Wheeling Heritage is asking you to choose which mural will be installed at Kossuth Park, located at the intersection of Interstate 70 and Route 2 in downtown Wheeling. Choose one of the four designs by voting at wheelingheritage.org/art. Voting ends Jan. 31. The artist with the most votes will create and display their art at this gateway into Wheeling.
What you should know
Keep in mind that the goal of this art installation is to serve as a welcome to Wheeling, instill pride in the community, engage the citizenry, and interweave the arts and culture into the utilization of public space.
Not only will community members vote on the mural, but they will also have the chance to participate in its creation. The project will have a community involvement aspect, such as a paint by numbers section or designated section to be painted by the community, as decided upon by the artist.
