Murals & Milestones - Streator Walldogs Event
The 2018 Murals and Milestones festival was held June 27 to July 1. The event featured 260 artists, representing 31 U.S. States and 11 countries painting 17 murals in 4 days. "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.
Topics include Streator Baseball, Glass Capital of the World, and Bob Tattersall. 


Heritage Park Mural
Dedicated in 2017, the Heritage Park Mural is the largest mural in Streator. This piece of art stands three-stories tall. Lead by Westclox Studios, this mural took a sad wall and made it look incredible. The piece is backlit to make it look like lights are on in the building at night, thanks to donors and the assistance of NCI ARTworks.
