The committee is responsible for site selection and coordination of murals as well as other arts in open and public spaces throughout Bangor. 

Current Projects

Hammond Street Ground Mural - Coming Summer 2024

We're partnering with Wabanaki Public Health & Wellness to create Bangor's 1st large street mural to calm traffic and beautify a busy section of road in Downtown Bangor.

Mural Fun Run - Saturday, May 11th 10-11:30am

We're excited to announce our very first Mural Fun Run! Join us as we explore the many beautiful murals of Bangor in a unique way—a party-paced run! We will start off at Chimera Coffee in the heart of downtown, then jog our way to nine murals throughout the area. At each mural, you'll get the chance to hear about its history and meaning and receive a totally rad button that includes an image of the mural! The route is a total of ~ two miles, and all paces and faces are welcome. We hope to see you there! 

Spring Woods Mural - Coming Summer 2024

We have commissioned Maine-based artist, Jared Goulette aka The Color Wizard to create a multi-story mural on Hammond Street in Downtown Bangor depicting the Maine forest in spring.
