State Library sites sources in response to request

Thank you for contacting the Law and Legislative Reference Library, an
office of the Maine Legislature.

Acording to several news articles we found online, in 2007 there was a
MAC juried competition to select an artist to produce the mural; they
selected Judy Taylor. In 2008 a federal grant of $60,000 paid for the
production of the mural. Here are a links to a few articles on the
subject: (includes links to
several Maine articles)
On the Governor's website, there is a page of "latest news", including a
press release regarding the mural:

Donna McNeil of the Maine Arts Commission stated that the mural was not
funded by the Percent for Art but was privately funded by the Department
of Labor. This quote is available here:

We cannot find anything more regarding the ownership of the mural, but
you may want to contact the Department of Labor, who may be able to tell
you more. Their phone number is (207) 623-7900

An article in the Sun Journal published over the weekend stated that the
Department of Labor is referring all questions regarding the mural to
the Governor's office. This article can be found here:

The Governor's office can be reached at 207-287-3531

If you have further questions please feel free to contact us again.
