ALBION — The Albion S.T.A.R. Team, in partnership with the Noble County Convention & Visitors Bureau, is seeking creative proposals for a mural to be installed in Albion that will highlight the county’s many contributions to the 200-year history of the state.

The state’s bicentennial will be celebrated in 2016. The submission deadline is 5 p.m. Oct. 9.

“We are looking to highlight important people, events and industries that demonstrate the impact Noble County has had on the history of the state of Indiana,” said S.T.A.R. Team President Steve Hook. “People like Gene Stratton-Porter, Arthur Franklin Mapes and L.D. Baker have made their mark and we want to preserve that for future generations. The design should also take into consideration Noble County’s past and present manufacturing contributions.”

All artists interested in participating this program must complete and adhere to the guidelines in the request for proposal prepared by the S.T.A.R. Team. It is a competitive process, allowing all artwork and artists an equal opportunity to be selected.

A copy of the request for proposal can be downloaded at albionstarteam.org, or a hard copy can be obtained from the Albion Town Hall.

Questions can be directed to Hook at shook@nobleco.org or by calling him at 409-0967.

The CVB is the official lead organization in Noble County for the state’s bicentennial celebration.
