Sweet P’s holding downtown mural design contest

KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Artists and designers are invited to submit ideas for a new mural to be painted on the side of Sweet P’s Downtown Dive in Knoxville.

The restaurant says the mural will reflect the restaurant’s vibe and brand, and should include “Sweet P’s Barbeque” or “Sweet P’s BBQ” in the design. The winning design will be painted on the side of the building facing west toward the 100 block of Gay Street.

Official entries should be mailed to Sweet P’s co-owner Jonathan Ford at jonathan@sweetpbbq.com by September 4 at 5 p.m. The winner will be announced at the Vol Kickoff Party on Friday, September 11, at The Standard. The free party starts at 4 p.m. with games and former UT football players signing autographs.

The event will end with a concert by Gran Torino with The Hermit Kings at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 and may be purchased online.

Mural submissions should be high-resolution PDFs or JPGs. The company recommends an 8×11 file size with 150 dpi print resolution. Files must be 2MB or less. By submitting a design, the artist agrees to allow Sweet P’s to share and use the design for promotional and other purposes.
