Our Mission:
The preservation of history through community art

Mural Mania began with Noel Dobbins and Mark DeCracker and others in Lyons in 2007.  Noel was especially interested in a series of murals along the canal corridor.  Noel passed away later that year, but Mark has carried the torch since then with great enthusiasm.  In the spring of 2013 after discovering murals in Colquitt, GA and Dothan, AL, Walworth Town Historian Gene Bavis joined Mark in Mural Mania.

MMAC Goals:

Ø  To promote the mission of Mural Mania:  “the preservation of history through community art.”
Ø  To maintain a list of mural artist, local and outside of the area.  This list would include professionals and talented amateurs.
Ø  To gather technical and supplier information that would assist local groups to carry out their project(s).
Ø  To assist local groups in any way possible to create more murals for our area.  This would include publicity and fundraising, and any other possible assistance and support we can give.
Ø  To coordinate with Tourist Promotion Agencies, the Seaway Trail group, the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor, local historical societies, and any other groups possible to carry out the mission.
Ø  To bring the World Murals Conference to Wayne County and/or the Finger Lakes Region.

Ideas/Goals/Projects to discuss:

Ø  How to generate more interest and involvement in this group
Ø  A Wayne County Mural Trail
Ø  An updated and upgraded website
Ø  A possible “field trip” to Golden Paint Company in New Berlin, NY
Ø  Getting High School art students interested in murals

Ø  A “Gateway” mural – A BIG mural somewhere along Rt. 104 where a LARGE number of people will see it.
