Clipper City Rail Trail seeking mural artists

Artists and design professionals are invited to submit proposals for a public art mural project along a fenced corridor of the Clipper City Rail Trail in Newburyport. Funded by a Recreational Trails Grant from the Mass. Department of Conservation and Recreation, the permanent murals will enhance the trail corridor, contribute to the distinct character of the area, and help bring art to people’s everyday lives. Proposals are due by May 1. Final selections will be completed in June and the murals created over the summer. For information, contact Newburyport Art Association executive director Elena Bachrach at 978-465-8769 or ebachrach@newburyportart.org.
