By now, it’s no secret that Western New York is a top-tier destination for all things public art. It seems like just about anywhere you go within the region, you’re met with Instagram-worthy murals that span the length of entire buildings, bringing our communities to life with their vibrant and vivid colors. Every new installation brings a little bit of magic— not to mention an ideal spot to snap a quick selfie. 

In case you missed it in your mural hunting endeavors, Livingston County recently installed nine new full-scale murals during the first ever county-wide mural festival in New York State. This massive festival took place back in July 2022 and welcomed a number of highly talented artists from around the world. (Plus a few local artists, too!)

Located in each one of Livingston County’s nine villages, each of the nine new murals are inspired by a fascinating fact or a little-known story that commemorates the history of each village. And with the weather slowly warming up as we blossom into spring, now is the perfect time to plan a day trip or weekend getaway to check them all out.

  • Horse Country in Avon, NY by Ivan Roque from Miami, FL

  • First Flight in Livonia, NY by Justin Suarez from Rochester, NY

At each mural, you’ll also find a plaque with a QR code to scan with your smartphone to be directed to an exclusive video interview with the artist who painted it. See if you can find them all as you set out on a mural scavenger hunt throughout the county! 

Pro Tip: Once you’ve seen all nine of LivCo’s new murals, check out a few other local favorites, including: Avon in Full Color by Shawn Dunwoody in Avon, New Family, One Nation Mural by Shawn Dunwoody in Mount Morris, Livonia Blooms by Shawn Dunwood in Livonia.
