From the Fair: 100-Year Anniversary Mural Project

We’re kicking off our 95th celebrations with the 100-year anniversary in mind. One of our centennial projects is the creation of a Fair mural on the side of the Millard Sheets Art Center!

We have partnered with professional artists and students alike to design the mural. They started work on it today, and will continue throughout this year’s Fair!

Stay tuned for updates on the mural, as well as other 100-year anniversary news.
