Galesburg Art Commission wants help naming mural

The Galesburg Public Art Commission is inviting kids 12 and under to come up with a name for a downtown mural.  The mural is on the side of “The Box” art gallery on Kellogg Street, situated between the Orpheum Theatre and the Knox County Jail. The Art Commission’s Board President Carla Markwart says that any Knox County kid can submit a name idea. Name ideas have to be emailed to galesburgpublicart21@gmail.com by Feb. 10, with the winner being announced a few days later. Also, the winner will win a prize of $50 provided by a local donor, along with another $50 in art supplies for their school. Markwart suggests a drive by the mural or to look at photos on the Galesburg Public Art Commission’s Facebook page.
