“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 a series of murals in one 3-5 day festival. The tradition of painting wall advertisements dates back to the early 1800s. Evidence of this can be seen as “Ghost Signs” throughout cities of all sizes. These mural painters of old were often called Walldogs.
In late June, the Walldogs will join the Keene community for 4 days creating 15 public art murals in our downtown depicting our city’s historic resources and rich cultural heritage. More info here. | Sign up to volunteer here
