Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com)--- For you rock collectors out there, an artist from Minnesota is seeking help gathering as many stones as he can for a new mural he's working on in Duluth.

Artist Craig David is creating a large mosaic-style mural at the Government Services Center in Duluth.

The mural, titled "WaterNotes" will depict water, sky, flora, fauna and the iconic industrial/urban forms of bridges, tracks, pilings and structures.

David is seeking the community's help in gathering stones as the mural will be created in a combination of natural stone tile and stones collected from the beaches of Lake Superior and the hills of St Louis County.

The rocks will be sliced and used as a mosaic within the mural.

David asks that stones be between two and eight inches in diameter. Possible materials include

-unusual, colorful, unique or interesting natural stone/rock

-lake-work stone and materials from the highlands

-lake-worn glass and industrial iron

The rocks can be placed in collection boxes at the Government Center in Duluth, Northland Office Center in Virginia, the Hibbing Courthouse Annex, and the St Louis County Service Center in Ely starting August 13 through September 12.

The mural will be displayed in the entry way of the Government Services Center once renovations are complete.
