The Montevideo Area Arts Project committee has been awarded a $13,000 grant from the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council for an upcoming mural project to be completed in summer of 2019. The mural will be located on the public stairway on the north end of Main Street, in-between Kluven Law and Christa Landmark Boutique. The project timeline calls for work to begin in March with design workshops and community presentations, led by artist Victoria Fortenberry-Jones. The design will be finalized in May and the painting of the mural will take place over several weekends in June and July.
