Make It Your Own Mural Fest Generates Regional, National Attention

Make It Your Own Mural Fest wrapped up on Friday, Sept. 18, 2020, after garnering significant regional and national media attention!  

The unique regional mural festival concept was an innovative, creative activation of the Make It Your Own brand intended to enhance the region’s efforts to drive talent attraction, talent retention and tourism by investing in quality of place assets and public art.

Over 11 days, 11 artists installed a high-quality, large-scale mural—one in each of the 11 counties of Northeast Indiana. The festival culminated with a regional Mural Fest photo contest with over $2,500 in prizes, which ends October 18. Find out more about the social media contest by liking us on Facebook
