Asheboro – One of the newest microbreweries in North Carolina, Four Saints Brewing Company, is announcing a call for art proposals for their inaugural “Art Wall Project”. Located at 218 South Fayetteville Street in downtown Asheboro, features North Carolina-based artists as part of their “Great Beer for Great People” beginning business model. “We believe the arts are an integral part of every healthy and thriving community,” according to Joel McClosky, Chief Executive of Four Saints. “Being able to showcase local artists in our taproom through this project is one way we can support, enliven, and encourage the arts in our rejuvenating community.
Four artists will be selected to create four separate artworks on-site utilizing a designated 12 feet long and 4.5 feet high blank wall in the Four Saints Tasting Room. Each of the four works of art will be on display for a period of three months. The complete Art Wall Project, with rotating art installations, will begin January 2016 and conclude July 2017. Each artist will be honored with a public meet-and-greet reception. As an added bonus, each artist will also design a limited edition t-shirt to commemorate their project. These shirts will be available for sale to the public. Stipends for each project are available.
The Four Saints Art Wall Project proposals must be received and/or postmarked by December 19th, 2015. A nominal fee of $5 is required. Four Saints will host a free information meeting on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 @ 6:30 p.m. in the tasting room located at 218 South Fayetteville Street, in downtown Asheboro.
