Connecting the Past to the Future
All murals must have something symbolic to the Moundsville and Marshall County area. Each mural needs to tell a story about our rich history. Listed below are some examples that might spark interest to all:
Coal miners working in the late 1800's in the coal mines
Paddle boats moving people and supplies up and down the Ohio River
The building of the Narrows
B & O Railroad History
Marx's Toy Operation
Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel
Former WV Penitentiary
The Grave Creek Mound
Frontier History such as Lewis & Clark, Lewis Wetzel, the Tomlinson Family & More
Jefferson Avenue Business District with cars of the time and trolley
The UMAC wishes to breathe new cultural life into the city with the mural project. The murals will be drawn by local artists , and the city will be given the story behind each mural.
The UMAC wants to provide the City of Moundsville and Marshall County with quality 3D murals that will give locals and visitors an insight into the rich history of our city. With these murals, you will be able to glimpse into the history of our town. Not only will this bring culture to our city, but the murals will provide tourists with an insight into our history.
