Want a corn mural of the old Kent County crest?

If you live in Chatham-Kent, the nine-foot-by-nine-foot mural could be yours.

The municipality is offering it to the public free of charge.

Chatham-Kent council on Monday evening approved a motion to hand it over to a member of the public.

It’s currently on display at the PUC office in Chatham.

Parties interested in assuming responsibility for the corn mural in question are encouraged to submit their interest in writing to the municipal clerk’s office at ckclerk@chatham-kent.ca by Sept. 15.

If there are multiple submissions, the award will be done by lottery. The individual or organization wishing to take ownership of the corn mural will be responsible for costs associated with its relocation.

The mural was commissioned by Pioneer Hi-Bred Limited and was donated to the County of Kent in 1984.

The artist was Bill Green of Stable Studios in Charing Cross. A history of the mural can be found here: https://pub-chatham-kent.escribemeetings.com/filestream.ashx?DocumentId=572

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, viewing of the mural will not be possible. The mural is being offered to Chatham-Kent residents only at this time.
