Westbury Public Art Opportunity

Salisbury Tavern, a popular sports bar and dining spot in Westbury, seeks an artist to submit proposals of original art for a mural to be painted on a small wall in their outside lounge area. The owners of the Tavern would like to express a patriotic theme that incorporates eagle wings and the American flag.

Their purpose is to offer a photo opportunity for patrons and in doing so, encourage sharing of photos and location on social media outlets.
