Bringing Downtown Lake Geneva to Life

This event, masterfully organized by the Lake Geneva Business Improvement District, is more than just an art exhibition. Led by Alexandria Binanti, the Executive Director, and J. Alethea Salgado, a dedicated board member, "Murals in Motion" aims to celebrate our community’s spirit, enhance creativity, and boost local culture.

It’s a platform designed to not only beautify the city but also to support and promote small businesses by drawing visitors downtown through the allure of art.

A Showcase of Exceptional Talent

This year's lineup features a mix of local and international artists, each bringing their unique vision to the streets of Lake Geneva. With participants from as far as Peru and Greece, the festival highlights a global community's connection through art. Each mural is a reflection of Lake Geneva’s scenic beauty and rich history, ensuring every painted wall has a story that resonates with both locals and visitors alike.

Local and International Artists Come Together

Watch as artists like Neal Aspinall bring local festivities like Lake Geneva's Winterfest to life through vibrant murals. Neal's artwork, alongside pieces by other gifted artists such as Sabrina and Freybrianne, will capture the essence and vibrancy of Lake Geneva. From joyous depictions of youthful summers to gateways blooming with wildflowers by Dustin Eckhardt, these murals promise to transform the city into an open-air gallery that celebrates life, history, and community.

More Than Just Murals

"Murals in Motion" is packed with activities that go beyond painting. With everything from a pop-up beer garden to live performances and interactive art sessions, there’s something for everyone.

Families can enjoy yoga in the park, chalk art, and even musical performances, most of which are free, making it an ideal outing for anyone looking to enjoy a culturally rich and budget-friendly experience.

Art That Lives On

The impact of "Murals in Motion" extends beyond the event. These artworks will grace Lake Geneva's walls for at least the next five years, serving as a lasting tribute to this year’s creativity and community effort. This ongoing display not only beautifies the city but also continually draws visitors, enhancing the local economy and community spirit.

Why You Shouldn’t Miss Out

"Murals in Motion" isn’t just an event; it's a movement. 

It exemplifies Lake Geneva’s vibrant community ethos and our commitment to supporting local talents and businesses. Whether you're an art lover, a family on an outing, or someone keen on exploring unique cultural experiences, this event promises memorable moments.

If you’re in Lake Geneva from May 15th to 19th, don’t miss the chance to see these incredible murals come to life. For those unable to attend, these murals await your next visit, ready to inspire and amaze. Remember, the art continues to thrive long after the paint dries, and Lake Geneva remains a lively hub of activity all year round.

More Seasonal Festivities and Local Traditions in Lake Geneva

Beyond the Murals in Motion festival, Lake Geneva offers a vibrant array of events throughout the year. Starting with Maxwell Street Days in August, which supports local businesses and features live music, the city continues to celebrate with the popular block party Oktoberfest on Columbus Day weekend. 

Additionally, Lake Geneva hosts two Wine Walks annually, with the fall walk being ideal for early holiday shopping. The year culminates in the Shop Small Weekend and a festive Christmas tree lighting, celebrating local unity and the holiday spirit, and showcasing Lake Geneva as a hub where art and community thrive.
