The Cheboygan Area Arts Council and Art Vision Cheboygan are putting out a call for artists to submit design concepts for a new mural to be installed this summer at Washington Park.
The new mural will be on the south side of the wooden wall between Washington Park and Sozo Health, in the middle of downtown Cheboygan. A historic mural featuring Native Americans and settlers is painted on the north side of the wall, nearest to the Cheboygan Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau. The new mural will replace some quilt square panels that had been on the south side.
“The historic mural is still there. Art Vision took the quilt square panels down that were on Sozo’s side,” said Cheboygan Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau Executive Director Polly Schneider. “I think some fresh artwork there will be great, and it will help bring their vision of more public art to life.”
