The latest community mural in Vermillion will be revealed Saturday.
The Vermillion Community Mural Project & the Vermillion Cultural Association are hosting a dedication event celebrating the completion of the second installation of a two-part mural. The dedication will be held by the east-facing wall of the Coyote Twin Theater located at 10 East Main Street in Vermillion Saturday at 2 p.m.
The mural artists will share information about the process and inspiration behind the design, as well as reflections on painting during the pandemic. The mural dedication is an event meant to bring members of the community together in celebration of Vermillion’s growing interest and investment in creating public art spaces throughout the city.
Preparation for this project began in April of 2019, with the artists planning community meetings and researching public art. Over the course of the year, the group worked to raise a little over $13,00 through local grant organizations such as the Vermillion Rotary Club, fundraisers, and private donations.
