5 artists vie to paint wetlands mural

March 18, 1994

A committee will interview by the end of this month five artists who are vying for a grant to cover a large wall at Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary with a mural of the wetlands.

Chris Swarth, director of the sanctuary in the southwestern corner of the county, said the five-member committee narrowed the field of artists from 12 to five in the past week.

All five are painters, he said.

A grant of up to $5,000 will go to the selected artist. Centermark Properties Inc., developer and owner of the Annapolis Mall, is funding the project.

The blank wall to be painted is at the recently expanded McCann Wetlands Study Center. Park administrators want an irregularly shaped mural about 20 feet by 14 feet that depicts marsh life.

L "The mural will be a teaching tool for us," Mr. Swarth said.
