Cozad Chamber of Commerce Tourism commissioned a 50 State Barn Quilt Display in Cozad. This is a unique community art installation. The display is 6’ x 50’ with all 50 states represented. Every state will have their own square. Each state has an official quilt block, much like a state bird or flower designation that we will be using.
Rose Mapel of Rustic Milling & Craft, LLC was commissioned to paint the barn quilt blocks for the project to maintain uniformity in color and design. They are displayed on west 7th Street on the Mead Lumber storage building.
The Cozad Tourism committee is requesting sponsorships to help support this project. The initial expenses have been funded by the Tourism Committee through lodging tax dollars. It is our hope that this one-of-a-kind piece of art will draw tourists to the area to see their state’s block. Sponsorships for each of the 50 state blocks are $200.00. This includes the cost of having the 2’x 3’ block commissioned and painted as well as contributing for installation and maintenance costs. Download your sponsorship form here.
We’d love to have you help us celebrate this exciting showpiece which is sure to capture a positive first impression to visitors to our community.
