US Mint seeking artists to design our nation's coins
The United States Mint and the National Endowment for the Arts are seeking artists to participate in the Mint's Artistic Infusion Program, a commission program for artists and illustrators to design the nation's coins and medals. "By partnering with the NEA, the Artistic Infusion Program will attract an even wider range of new and diverse artists to contribute to the design of America's coins and medals," said Mint Deputy Director Richard A. Peterson. Are they looking for you?
