Organizers say they believe that art is not only beautiful, but also transformative and impactful.

Community murals have value beyond the art on the walls to share our message on the importance of nature, our crystal clear recreational lake, and the rich history of Lake Geneva from Native American roots to the Gilded Age destination built with opulence and grandeur.

Organizers say they hope this inaugural mural project will set the standard for future murals with a goal to complete 12 murals in three years and later construct a sculpture walk near the lakefront.
