Municipal Murals

Wendell Mural

Through the Municipal Murals program, United Arts has worked with the towns of Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Wake Forest, Zebulon, and most recently, Wendell to create new murals in their towns. With support from the Wake County Government, United Arts is now closer to its goal of a mural in all 12 Wake County towns. The murals are intended to be visible representations of the thriving arts community in Wake County.
