In an effort to bring more art to Marshalltown, the Marshall County Arts and Culture Alliance has been bringing in Iowa artists to paint murals around town. The project, “Marshalltown Murals,” has led to dozens of creations on downtown buildings, all with messages of unity and positivity.

New artists for a two-wall mural on the Tremont Building in downtown and the walkway into McGregors Furniture and Mattress will be announced soon. Past artists include Jenna Brownlee, a Des Moines muralist, Rebecca WagnerLauren Gifford and more.
