The city of Kalamazoo has so many amazing murals to discover that if you are still somewhat new to the city, you will continue to discover new pieces of art the more of the city you discover. Now the city is giving a local artist, the opportunity to have their work of art displayed on the entire side of a massive building.

The city of Kalamazoo recently announced that they are looking for an artist to submit an idea for a Mural that will go on the north side of the Monroe building. That is the building that is right next to The Haymarket Building where the Wine Loft is currently located in Downtown Kalamazoo. They detailed their hopeful project in a recent post:
