McCollum Hall Mural Presentations at Public Art Committee Meeting Sept. 15

Meeting Notice McCollum Wall Mural Project Artist Selection September 15

The mural project will be painted on seventeen concrete panels on the eight-foot-tall wall that separates McCollum Hall from the residential neighborhood just to the north. The Fort Myers Mural Society anticipates that work on the mural will begin in early January and be completed by April 30, 2021.


Almonicid and Schlake were chosen from a field of nine applicants by a gold star five-member selection committee who scored the artists’ submissions on the basis of originality, technical ability, visibility by motorists passing by on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, style and how well their designs express the Buck’s Backyard theme. Each finalist will be given 15 minutes to present their final designs to the Public Art Committee. Following the presentations, stakeholders, community members and other interested parties are invited to provide input on each design before the Committee selects the winning artist.
