Hey, U-M artists!
We’re doing a mural for the Michigan Union!

The project is simple:
Create a 5”X5” color sketch of an artistic design relating to student life at U of M…you can create up to five designs, as long as they are all submitted to me by July 17th. Make sure to also have a note with the sketch saying what medium you want to create in, along with a brief description of what’s going on in the piece(s). Any 2-D medium is allowed.

You will be notified on July 24 which of your designs were approved. To create the piece, you will be provided with a 5”x5” canvas board for each approved design. You can then paint the board and turn it in to me by August 21. The mural—really a tile mosaic—will be installed in the 4th floor fo the Union [big square of wall near the elevators] at the end of August.

Please forward this to all your friends, and anyone else you know who would like to paint the Union!

  1. (When are you going to start remembering info?)
    5” by 5”? Do they mean 5’ by 5’? 25 inches isn’t much of a mural.
