TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - July 17 is the last day for artists to apply for the Paul Dresser project hosted by Art Spaces, Inc. of Terre Haute, Ind.
Artists have until 5 p.m. to apply for the opportunity to create an outdoor sculpture to honor composer Paul Dresser and one of his best known songs, "On the Banks of the Wabash, Far Away," which has been the State Song of Indiana since 1913.
The selected artist will design a sculpture for Fairbanks Park, which lies along the East Bank of the Wabash in Terre Haute, Indiana, near Dresser's boyhood home.
The artist budget for this project is $50,000.
