The Oak Park Area Arts Council is searching for 10 artists for its mini-mural program, but this year it is making a special request — at least one of the murals will honor the late Val Camilletti, former owner of Val's halla Records.
The mural project awards $1,000 — $500 for materials and $500 upon completion — to winners to paint a mural on one of the concrete panels along the Union Pacific embankment that runs along North and South boulevards.
"This particular mural will be painted on South Boulevard, east of Oak Park Avenue and across from the first location of her popular store," the village notes.
Artists can find applications at www.oakparkareaartscouncil.org or pick them up at the council's office in room 212 at Oak Park Village Hall, 123 Madison St.
