WHS is Bringing Walldogs Back to Washington:
WHS Is Bringing Another Mural to Washington
The Washington Historical Society, in conjunction with private donors, is happy to announce that we are bringing another historically-themed Walldogs mural to Washington! This time, the mural will be painted on the west-facing wall of 104 S. Washington Square. We have engaged Anat Ronen, one of the Walldogs painters who worked on our William Holland mural last year, to come to town to paint this mural. She will be here for 10 days starting around September 12, and though we aren’t planning any public events for her residency, we do invite the public to bring a lawn chair and watch her paint while she’s here. Those who spent time watching the mural being created last year recall that it is a thoroughly entertaining and completely fascinating process to watch.
The Historical Society will gladly and gratefully accept donations to help cover the cost of the mural and artist-related expenses for the duration of her stay in Washington. If you wish to make a donation for the mural, please send it to:

We are very excited to be able to bring another educational and beautiful mural to Washington and are grateful to our donors for their support of this project. We hope the mural will be a positive addition to our downtown square for many, many years to come.
