In the spirit of keeping the arts alive and to boost the resurgence in our community, many of the downtown Belleville merchants and residents are looking to interject more public art into our downtown district. This project will be a COLLABORATIVE PROJECT including the downtown residents, building owners, local artists, the city and Belleville Main Street. The goal of the "Community Mural Project" is to make downtown Belleville a destination location in Southern Illinois bringing more foot traffic into the area which will positively impact the success of our downtown businesses.
The Community Mural Project was spearheaded by young local residents that LOVE Belleville. There is a resurgence of young people purchasing downtown and they are looking for a walk-able, progressive community with culture, art, history, and diversity.
