Visit The Murals

Vivid, eye-catching, and sometimes whimsical, each of Mesquite’s brand-new murals inspires a sense of wonder. Found at Front Street Station, these eight 7-by-10-foot works of art were chosen among 40 submissions by amateur and professional artists, as well as students. The result has transformed the area into a sprawling outdoor gallery that you’ll want to take your time exploring.
