Illustrator/Artist needed for Mural

JAMESTOWN, L.P. is looking for an artist/illustrator to do some work at a building the company owns and is redeveloping.

Jamestown also owns Chelsea Market and our vision for this building is not too dissimilar from that one with food uses on the ground floor, offices on upper floors, and an artsy vibe.

A mural was painted in the lobby.
