Glasstown Mural Arts Walking Tour

A Self-Guided Tour & Discovery of Our Mural Arts

Glasstown's first mural was done by Sam Donovan in 1998. Little did he know that many other murals would follow throughout the years. In addition to our murals, the Glasstown Arts District offers a dozen galleries/studios, the Levoy Theatre, upscale and casual dining restaurants, and several shops with artisan crafts for sale.

Our Mural Arts Walking Tour is a self-guided, exploration of our cherished neighborhood. The tour is designed in a sequence that travels from north to south, but can be started at any mural location, or navigated in a reverse order.
