MEDINA – The village is seeking proposals from artists for a canal-themed mural on the north side abutment of the Glenwood Avenue canal bridge.

Medina has already been approved for a $3,460 grant from GO Art! to pay for the project under the bridge.

Medina wants the mural with a historic flavor to be done by Sept. 30.

The proposal from artists should include three examples of previous murals.

The project area is approximately 528 square feet on previously painted concrete.

Mayor Mike Sidari said the mural is another effort from the village to enhance the canal waterfront.
