walls of a city into a giant sized painting is an idea that has
been kicking around in history for a long, long time. This book
documents mural art in both rural and urban Minnesota. These mural
have been created by professional artists as well as sign painters
and neighborhood amateurs who paint a wall as a group activity.
After a recap of the history of mural painting Moira Harris maps
out where each of the murals are with the photographic display.
Brief biographies are included for the muralists that were known.
United State Information Agency selected Museum of the Streets to

throughout the world.
