Art in Bennington

On paper, Bennington may seem like a small town, but our drive to create and appreciate art far exceeds our size. With a population under 16,000, Bennington is ranked third in the nation for the most artistic town with a population less than 60,000 people. There are large redevelopment projects planned over the next two years including the restructuring of the downtown. With all the upcoming change, we have an opportunity to surround ourselves with more art by adding more murals to our beautiful town.

Every Mural Tells a Story

Murals are viewed across demographics as a positive attraction and a feature of a well-knit community.  Larger cities organize groups to promote and maintain their public art and it is the perfect time for Bennington do the same. We have a vibrant artist community ready and willing to put their mark on the town so we should take advantage of it.
