Decatur Mural Project

The Decatur Mural Project was established in 2012 to create partnerships with artists, property owners, the City, local volunteers, and sponsors or funding agencies for the creation of murals for the beautification of Decatur buildings. The murals are also intended to showcase the creative abilities of our local artists.

Project Goals
The goals of the Decatur Mural Project are to:

  1. Beautify buildings throughout the city which are primarily in high visibility locations.
  2. Visually promote the benefit of the arts throughout the community.
  3. Create a sense of pride among Decatur residents.
  4. Provide a positive impact on project participants.

The Decatur Mural Project is accepting proposals from artists for future murals.
