June 27 to July 1, 2018
The Walldogs" is an internationally renowned organization of sign and mural artists. Every year The Walldogs organize a festival where hundreds of artists descend upon a village or small town to paint several dozen murals in one 3-5 day festival. The tradition of painting wall advertisements dates back long before today. Evidence of this can be seen as "Ghost Signs" throughout cities of all sizes. These mural painters of old were often called Walldogs.
The Murals and Milestones Festival was held June 27 through July 1st in downtown Streator. A total of 17 Walldogs murals and 2 kids murals were painted during the event.
