Downtown Walldog Murals

 

(800) 383-4386
Downtown Danville
Danville, IL 61832

 

Walldog sign and mural artists trace their trade back to the sign-painters of old who painted advertisements on walls in communities all over the country. They worked like dogs in the hot sun and thus came to be known as “wall dogs.” Along with the name, today’s mural artists pay homage to this profession through the use of specific design styles and colors. As a result, their murals capture that sense of nostalgia and historic significance. In August 2010, one hundred and sixty-two Walldog artists traveled to Danville from all over the world for a four day meet. During that span, they forever changed and enhanced the city, gracing us with sixteen murals in a 7 block area.

 

Guided Walldog tours can be scheduled for any day of the week.  The tour is approximately an hour long and can be done on foot or by motorcoach.
