Mr. Mouse's Mail

Fayetteville Public Library is looking for a muralist!

Artists are invited to create a cozy mouse house mural in the Preschool Library. The selected artist will install their piece, which will kick off Mr. Mouse's Mail – a letter-writing program where preschoolers and grade schoolers exchange letters with Mr. Mouse who has now "moved in" to the library.

Where will Mr. Mouse's dream house be located?


The mural will be located on one of the columns in the Preschool Library. The exact one is displayed in the picture, and we invite interested artists to come look at the space in person! 

What does a mouse's dream house look like?


Ideally, the mural would contain details that invite layers of discovery, such as native Arkansas plants, trees and bugs. The rest is up to you!

The selected artist will receive a cash prize and the opportunity to install a mural in the Children's Library at FPL. The library will provide all of the needed art materials for the chosen mural. 

Mural specs:

+ Spans across three, two-feet-wide column panels
+ Begins to taper off at 4 feet high; be fully finished at 5 feet
