This 4 day mural painting festival will kick off on June 27, 2018. The festival will feature the Walldogs and local artists painting 16 historical murals throughout our downtown. The Walldogs" is an internationally renowned organization of sign and mural artists. Every year, the Walldogs organize a festival where hundreds of artists descend upon a village or small town to paint several dozen murals in one 3-5 day festival. The tradition of painting wall advertisements dates back long before today. Evidence of this can be seen as "Ghost Signs" throughout cities of all sizes. These mural painters of old were often called Walldogs. In conjunction with the celebration of Streator's Sesquicentennial, the Walldogs will take over the entire town for 5 days adding 10-15 murals to our downtown depicting our community's rich historical heritage. We named the event Murals and Milestones to celebrate Illinois' Bicentennial, Streator's Sesquicentennial, and the Walldogs 25th year.
