Artsy murals to grace downtown Springfield
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Downtown Springfield is about to get more artsy.
The city’s aldermen have agreed to provide $50,000 in tax increment financing for a mural project in the business district.
Local artists will create large-scale murals as part of Downtown Springfield Inc.’s “Artification” project.
The State Journal-Register in Springfield reports (http://bit.ly/1bX3BC5 ) the first mural will feature a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. It should be unveiled in mid-July.
