BUCKSPORT – Main Street Bucksport was recently awarded a Maine Expansion Arts Fund grant from the Maine Community Foundation.
The grant will pay for the creation of several large-scale murals in downtown Bucksport.
The first mural they created was unveiled at the 2018 Bucksport Arts Festival.
In 2020, locals artists will be asked to submit applications to create four murals in the summer of that year.
Locations for the murals are still being determined. Anyone who owns a downtown property and is interested in having a mural created on their building should contact Main Street Bucksport.
