Community Murals

Do you know of a wall that is need of a transformation? Art commissioners, neighborhood associations, and community art organizations are foundational to bringing art into our community spaces, but every project starts with one person with a big idea.  

If you are just starting out in your efforts to bring art into your community, I invite you to read my Getting Started Handbook for Art Advocates or listen to my podcast, If These Walls Could Talk, where I interview public art professionals, citizen art activists, and artists who share their insights on bringing more mural art into our public spaces.

Consider the Benefits of Public Mural Art

  • Mural art deters graffiti, saving the city or building owner money on graffiti remediation.
  • Murals require little maintenance and last up to 30 years.
  • Mural art provides substantial beautification at a fraction of the cost of other capital improvement projects (like landscaping or hardscaping).
  • Mural art increases foot traffic. Visitors who spend more time walking around patronize local shops, providing a boost to the local economy.
  • The buildings and businesses with murals become visual icons in the community.
  • Mural art boosts civic engagement and community pride.
  • Last but not least: a mural makes an awesome backdrop for photos.

What Clients are Saying

Morgan is an active listener who asked the right questions and helped guide us through a complicated process of a publicly paid mural on a privately-owned building. Our collaboration with Morgan helped to win over “mural art skeptics” in the community and paved the way for more mural projects along Commercial Way. The transformation was electrifying, different, beautiful, fun. We love our mural!

The mural you created for our building has been a major attraction for both locals and visitors in Downtown Napa. The transformation of an eyesore to a work of art has been nothing short of amazing. Your attention to detail and sensitivity, and bringing the Wappo tribe into the process, unified Napa’s residents with the beautiful story of our history.

Every day, as I watch children and adults transported to an earlier time in the Napa Valley, I appreciate your ability to be the vehicle for their journey.
