Geneseo Mural Project

 

THE GENESEO MURAL PROJECT WILL PLACE MURAL INSTALLATIONS AROUND TOWN THAT WILL LIVEN UP OUR ALREADY ACTIVE TOWN AND GIVE RESIDENTS AND VISITORS A PLACE TO SNAPSHOT AND SHARE THEIR ACTIVIES IN OUR GREAT CITY. 
 

 

Professional murals will be installed in Geneseo, Illinois, a shopping and dining destination that hosts many festivals and events year-round. Initial locations for the first phase of the Geneseo Mural Project will be installed the Fall of 2022. The first will be installed over Homecoming weekend, September 15 through 18, 2022, on the South side of 134 South State Street (Geneseo Home Furnishings). The murals will greet drivers and pedestrians as they experience our downtown. More murals are proposed to be added around town over the course of the next few years and phases of the mural project. See some of the concept designs below!
