Individual artists or teams of artists are encouraged to apply, as are artists who live in or near the Upper Valley. Artists are encouraged to select themes related to Lebanon’s history, geography, natural environment, and recreational activities. (Artists also may, but are not required to, use railroad spikes leftover from the development of the Mascoma Greenway.) The tunnel is 350 feet long and the walls are generally 18 feet in height. Installations and murals can be on the walls within the tunnel, with the exception of the granite stones on the eastern end. Artwork should exist within the physical structure of the tunnel without necessarily taking up the whole tunnel. The finished artwork will be owned by the City of Lebanon. While artwork installations and murals should be constructed to withstand outdoor public display and four seasons of New England weather, they are not expected to be permanent, and the City of Lebanon reserves the right to remove the artwork at any time. Any modifications to finished artwork will be done in consultation with the artist. 3D installations must be fastened to the tunnel walls and not impede with the flow of pedestrian and bicycle traffic. The installation method will need to be approved by the City of Lebanon Public Works and building inspectors. For additional regulations, please refer to the City of Lebanon Public Art Policy which will be provided when finalized by the Lebanon City Council.
