As part of the Johnston Community School District centennial celebration, individuals, businesses, or groups in the community can leave their permanent mark on Johnston history with the Painted Dragon Project.
Artists will have the opportunity to paint a dragon like the example pictured here in celebration of the district’s 100 year anniversary.
Call for Dragon Sponsors Your organization or business can become involved in helping the district celebrate their Centennial! Become a sponsor of a dragon (4 foot tall concrete dragon) for $4,500. Each dragon will be placed at a school district facility and include a plaque commemorating the sponsor and artist. Sponsorship is limited and will be first-come, first-serve. This order will also determine order of artist/location selection.
Call for Artists Artists will provide a drawing of their plans for painting a dragon that will be reviewed by a committee to select the 10 to be completed. Artist will be honored along with sponsors at a reception to kick-off the Painted Dragon Project. The Dragon prize for one selected artist is $2,014.
