Since 2009, this ‘paint-the-town’ initiative, spearheaded by professional artist Nadia Utto, has provided opportunities to spend some time ‘on-the-wall’ contributing a personal touch to the local ambiance, for over 40 skilled regional artisans and hobbyists, along with approximately 100 individual residents and visitors.

There are fun ‘treasure-hunt’ hidden aspects painted within each mural…. So stop by the Chamber for a Mural Tour Map/Brochure – and walk, bike, drive or take a sponsored tour to and around these landmarks!

Building owners, business tenants and community residents support the overall effort, none-the-less the majority of this work to date has been performed with modest honorariums and as a labor-of-love…
