Call for public art

Announcements
By EDITORIAL  |  March 30, 2011

Seeking designs for a 36-foot-long, 8-foot-tall mural to replace a degenerate, "one-sided" mural at the Maine Department of Labor office in Augusta. Please e-mail jpgs to jinglis@phx.com.

Submissions are encouraged to honor Maine's grand business history, from logging to shipbuilding, from the brave executives who put down the 1937 women's strike to steadfast proponents of child labor, from the paper-mill bosses who purified our waters with dioxins to those who intrepidly called in the National Guard to restore order in the face of wrong-thinking mobs and crybabies, and surplus and salvage company CEOs who selflessly offer damaged goods for retail sale before giving it all up for public service.

Favorite entries will be published in the Portland Phoenix and online. All submissions will be forwarded to Governor Paul LePage as potential replacements for the Augusta office lobby.
