Although COVID-19 hampered many of its plans for 2020 and 2021, the Putnam County Mural Project has announced that it will hold a mural festival in fall 2022. Additional details about the plans for the festival will be announced over the coming weeks.

“We are eager to expand the network of murals across the county and increase the opportunities for local artists to contribute,” said Chris Flegal, leader of the volunteer group. “As soon as we are able to safely gather in person, we will begin to seek opportunities for community involvement once again in the process of selecting walls, artists and more.”

The festival was originally planned for fall 2020, one year after the ambitious project that brought internationally recognized artist Key Detail to Greencastle to paint the silos of the S&W Feed Center at the intersection of Veterans Highway and U.S. 231 in Greencastle.

The Greencastle silos have become a key attraction in Putnam County and continue to receive recognition across the state and throughout the Midwest.

The fall 2022 mural festival will continue to engage the public in the mural process, with plans to install between three to five new murals across Putnam County.
