City Foundry STL Request For Mural Proposal
City Foundry STL is a large acre mixed-use development located in a former Federal-Mogul foundry plant in St. Louis, MO.  The development includes restaurants, a large food hall, offices, a grocery store, a movie theater, a rooftop beer garden, and retail.  See for additional information. 
At the center and heart of the development is a 30,000 sq ft Food Hall.  This large space is designed to accommodate up to 20 different Food Concepts.  The goal of the Food Hall is to “Celebrate St. Louis’ Food Talent and Innovation”.
The Owners of City Foundry have identified three locations at the entrances to the Food Hall, where they would like to commission murals.  These locations will be referred to as Location A, Location B, and Location C.  A photo and description of each location is in the Floor/Site plan link
