Hallowell History

Chris Cart's design encompasses Hallowell's fascinating 400+ year history—from pre-colonial days, through the Revolution and into the present day music & arts scene.

Mural Process

The 700 square foot mural (29ft x 24ft) is being painted on canvas with professional mural paints with a process designed by the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program.

Our Artist

Our artist Chris Cart—a master muralist in the prime of his career and long time Hallowell resident—has more than a dozen major murals around Maine, in Seattle and Washington D.C.

It is an exciting process to watch the mural progress. Chris Cart has been opening the mural studio weekly so people can see the progress, ask questions about process, subject matter etc.
