City of Monmouth
Request For Proposals for Outdoor Mural
Deadline: June 28, 2021
The City of Monmouth, through its Historic Commission, is requesting proposals from qualified artists residing in the Pacific Northwest to design and complete an outdoor mural that reflects the history and qualities of the city of rail transportation from Independence to Monmouth (I-M Railroad).
The basic theme is to depict the I-M Railroad and the surrounding area known as Talmadge, which was home to a Baseball Stadium and a Horse Racing Track.
The communities of Monmouth and Independence are committed to fostering an inclusive environment that is welcome to individuals from diverse backgrounds (see pdf link below). The City is interested in how these values may be woven into the historic use of the site by the railroad and as a community gathering space for recreation and entertainment.
