Wall murals have been around since ancient times and have evolved over time. Cheyenne has some very creative wall murals that decorate areas of the city.

Murals have played an important part in many societies around the world and across America. The reason is because some of them bring a story to the public arena. Even Egyptian Archeologists have found "murals" in the caves and tombs of Ancient Egypt, called hieroglyphs, or "words of gods."

Many private businesses and even governments have been sponsors of these murals through the years, because of the cost involved with painting them. Chapels, parks and public walls have all been "canvases" of which the painter or artist have used to display their creativity.

Cheyenne has some murals as well and we have listed some of the more popular ones here. We hope you enjoy them and will take the time to view them, up close and personal, in the near future.
