"It really was an exciting time back in 1995, the start of a dream to enhance our fair city by creating big, bold, beautiful historical murals. Our intent then, which continues today, is to see to completion such projects through public donations, without any tax dollars being spent. The Sterling Mural Society has chosen some great subjects to depict our history. A lot of study and research went into each mural selection and final matching of subject with the best location in the downtown area.
These murals proudly reflect our past, one that silently proclaims to local citizens and visitors alike – “Visit us, enjoy us, be a part of us.” As Sterling continues to reinvent itself for the future, citizens new and old can be proud of this past and use it as a base for continued growth and accomplishment." -John M.
