Each canvas is a custom made, wooden structure built by Mike Lucas. Mike has created over 200 similar forms as part of the McDowell Quilt Trail project. The City of Marion installed each piece, created and donated individual mural name plates to identify each piece and artist. The McDowell County Tourism Authority provided project funding and printed promotional brochures.
The walk covers three blocks in downtown Marion’s Main Street neighborhood. To find directions and to preview these delightful murals go to muraltrail.com. The Appalachian mural Trail website has over 75 cultural murals showcased that are located throughout North Carolina and Virginia.
The Appalachian Mural Trail honors mural projects that bring folks together to create public art that uplifts their community in such a beautiful way.
