THE WALL | Patchogue Arts Council, in collaboration with the Patchogue- Medford Library, is pleased to announce it is accepting submissions from muralists to exhibit a temporary mural on the rear of the Patchogue-Medford Library. The mural will be inspired by this year’s festival season theme Coming of Age 2021.

The mural will be located in a highly visible location on the rear of the Patchogue- Medford Library and will serve as the backdrop to many community activities throughout 2021.
