230 MAIN MURAL

Proposals are sought for artwork for a privately-owned property located at 230 Main Street, on the wall of New Mornings Natural Foods, which will be called the 230 Main Mural, in downtown Biddeford. This Request for Proposals is being coordinated by the Biddeford Public Art Committee (BPAC), a committee of Engine. Funding is provided by the Bangor Foundation.

The existing mural by Alex Kaminsky and Pete Vitello has enlivened the wall for almost a decade. Adjacent property owners would like to see a new concept for the wall.
