Proposals for a Mural for the Eisenhower Public Library District, Harwood Heights, IL
Summary of Project
A 4’ X 21’ mural is proposed on the south wall of Kids World, in the Eisenhower Public Library. Interested parties are welcome to view the space, and preview the existing mural
Theme - Dragons and books.
The Kids department has always wanted to feature this theme in their department.
A patron purchased the poster “Priceless Treasure” by Sue Dawe
(http://home.simplyweb.net/suedawe/gallery.html) for this department. Kids of all
ages loved that dragon. We wanted to create a dragon of our own.
The following are things we would like to see included:
1. one or more dragons—dragon should be child friendly but not childish
2. dragon should be reading or flying off with books
3. a forest
Work should be done on canvas. Canvas can depict one long scene or it can be separated to show multiple scenes
Submit your idea on one (1) 18” x 24” sheet of paper or cardstock. Alternately, you can submit your idea, and up to five (5) examples of other completed works, on a disc in JPEG, PNG, PDF, or TIFF format.
Dimensions should be to scale (1 inch = 1 foot).
All submissions become property of the Eisenhower Public Library District, and will not be returned.
