Chewelah Mural Project

Murals have the opportunity to tell the community's story, create a unique experience, engage the community and visitors alike.

Throughout Chewelah, you'll find many murals rooted in our community, history, and love of where we live. As a Washington Creative District, our murals increase appreciation for the arts and artists in our area and increase the overall attractiveness of the space to our city.

Many of the murals in Chewelah are from before CCD came into existence, but we are continuing the tradition by commissioning local arts to create more artwork throughout Chewelah.

Download our Chewelah Mural Map and set out to explore the artwork and our city.

A Year In Chewelah
