Street Art Fund & Main Street Mural Project

Why a Street Art Fund? 

Art is appreciated for myriad reasons. Public art has been shown to benefit communities broadly, as well as their residents and visitors. 

Don't take our word for it -- Gallup and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation explored this topic and more in a three year study of twenty six communities. A wealth of related information is available from their website.  

What is the first project?

It's a Mural, on Main Street! Location? The side of the building you might know as the old "Silver Grill" -- a building which is being renovated, right next to Memorial Park. The wall that will be used is the one which faces Memorial Park, shown in the image below. 

How can I learn more?

How is it funded?

The project is funded by donations from community groups and individual donors, including Perry Rotary Club; the Perry Main Street Association, its Mayors Matching Fund and new Street Art Fund; downtown business owners and individual donors.   

Can I make a donation to the Street Art Fund? 

Yes! You can make a donation online, or send in a check.
