Call for Artists

The Duluth Fine Arts League (DFAL) has issued a call for artists for “Living Honorarium,” a public art project conceived by Shirley Fanning Lasseter, former mayor of Duluth, Ga. This project will honor the members and living veterans of its firefighter and police forces.

“So many people are honored when a life is lost, but few while alive . . . . I want people to know we appreciate them now and forever—not just when their jobs are done and life is gone,” said former mayor Lasseter.

Professional artists in the Southeast working in any media are eligible to enter. The winner will receive $50,000. Entries will be installed on an octagonal piece of land in Historic Duluth.
