Request for Proposals — Mural Art in Middleburg

Akre Capital Management, located in Middleburg, Virginia, occupies a historic building formerly known as Mosby’s Tavern. Built in 1949 as a car dealership, the building has since been home to two restaurants and now serves as an office to Akre Capital Management. ACM desires to have a mural painted on the north exterior elevation of the building that faces the parking lot. This project serves to enhance the lives of ACM employees who view it daily and to provide an artistic opportunity for a talented illustrator. We have purposefully not selected a theme in order to provide the mural designer the potential for artistic expression. We seek proposals from those who have the ability to design, manage and implement the mural project to completion.
