The Murals of Colorado: Walls That Speak

This book introduces the reader to a very unique public art form that beautifies as well as educates. The murals and muralists are from many different eras of the state's history, from the late nineteenth century to the present. The stories behind the murals are as engaging as the murals themselves. In Colorado, artists often used the grand sweep of a mural to portray the human drama of a particular time, and at other times, murals were used to showcase the western landscape in all its grandeur.
