Second Annual Mural City Art Walk

Foster Street, Dothan, AL
The Murals of the Wiregrass board is proud to present the Second Annual Mural City Art Walk. This event will be hosted on Saturday, March 7th, 2015 in beautiful downtown Dothan. Attendees will be treated to a variety of artists set up along the 100 block of Foster Street from 10am to 4pm.

This family-friendly event will showcase the talents of all artistic mediums from local artists, as well as artists from all over the Southeast. All art will be available for purchase, and entertainment will be aplenty with performances by local theater groups, dance groups, musicians, and even a live mural painting.

We are still accepting applications from artists on our website www.muralcityartwalk.com and would like to invite all artists to participate. All artists will be invited to celebrate the day with a closing reception at the Loft on Foster, which will feature live entertainment, food and more.

Mural City Art Walk Chairman, Susan Herring, states, “The Mural City Art Walk is a ‘can’t miss’ event for Dothan. It is the perfect showcase of our local, talented artists and I can not wait to find some new art pieces for my home.” Ms. Herring encourages all of Dothan to come out and support this event again this year.

All proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Murals of the Wiregrass, which proudly maintains all the murals throughout Dothan.
