Nine Murals. Nine Villages. Nine Festivals.
The first-ever county-wide mural festival hosted in New York State will be happening in Livingston County this July. The LivCo Walls Mural Festival will welcome nine international artists to paint large-scale murals in each of the nine villages of Livingston County.
The nine villages of Livingston County are: Avon, Caledonia, Dansville, Geneseo, Leicester, Lima, Livonia, Mount Morris and Nunda. Each community has a charming downtown district where the mural will be located. These downtowns are pedestrian friendly and easy to navigate and each is lined with historic sites, small shops, and eateries.
Watch the artists paint throughout the month, meet each artist at a local artist talk, and join us for the final unveiling of each mural over the course of three weekends at festivals featuring dedication ceremonies, art activities for families, food, craft beverages, art demonstrations, live music and performances, and so much more in each village.
