About Our Auction
Want a Mini Mural on your home or business in Wells? For a minimum bid of $100 you can choose a Mini Mural to rent for two years. All works will be framed and protected for outdoor hanging and will remain in the permanent collection of IMA. Murals will be available in the spring once the snow melts. The 4’ x 4’ Mini Murals were painted at the 2018 ArtsWells Festival and bidding will run until Saturday, December 1 at 6:30pm.
Don't live in Wells? You can sponsor a mural and Island Mountain Arts will help find a location for it to hang in Wells.
The Mini Mural project was created in 2009 by Wells artist Caroline Anders and has been responsible for adorning the town of Wells with many beautiful murals that can be seen on houses and businesses throughout the town.
Island Mountain Arts would like to sincerely thank the artists who created a mural at the 2018 Festival, as well as all the artists that contributed to previous projects.
Also a big thanks to all of you in Wells who already have murals on your homes and businesses. Happy bidding!
