Tuba Library 209

In Spring 2017, the Mural Mice took a journey to another world. Their mission? To paint the childrens area of the Tuba City Public Library on the Navajo reservation. Moreover, they would request that the library community design and paint it with them. They rose to the occasion with colorful flair. The project was supported by the Arizona State Library, Archives & amp; Public Records, a division of the Secretary of State, with federal funds from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Story of a Ghost Mural

Mural Mice artists R.E. Wall and Margaret Dewar began work on the Ghost of Mabel Milligan in early May 2016. The Milligan House at (323 W. Aspen Ave. in Flagstaff Az.) is on the National Register of Historic Places and regarded as haunted by many. The project is the brain child of COF Marketing and Public Relations Manager This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Ward's vision is to proudly display a life sized mural of Mabel assending the stairs. The stairs will lead to a gallery of Mabel murals and become a featured attraction for the annual ghost walk tour.

This building was the home of JC Milligan, former Flagstaff Justice of the Peace and owner of a local brickyard. Later the house served as apartments, and now serves as the office of the Flagstaff Convention and Visitors Bureau. Past employees and tenants of the house report they often felt an unsettling presence late at night. The presence seemed to originate in an upstairs office. One former CVB employee speculates that this was the bedroom of Mabel Milligan, who died unexpectedly in 1923 and may continue to habituate her home. Footsteps are heard at night on the stairs and across the wooden floors, although the doors are locked and no one could be in the building. Often these noises are accompanied by freezing cold, and the unmistakable feeling of being watched. The spirit does not seem to be hostile or angry, but is just there.

Dedication Crowd

Largest Mural in Arizona

Let there be flight! The Sound of Flight mural on the East-facing wall of the Orpheum Theater in Flagstaff Arizona is complete and all the birds are chirping about it. Sound of Flight is the brainchild of local artist Sky Black, a 23-year-old native of Flagstaff, who always wanted to leave his mark in town. He brought in veteran muralists R.E. Wall and Margaret Dewar from Mural Mice Universal to help make his dream a reality. The 4500 Square foot mural project took 14 months to create. It took six months to raise funds and eight months to paint. The project is now regarded as the largest mural in Arizona.

The Sound of Flight is nearing completion. Two 24 foot high figures now stand guard over the alleyway. Here R.E. Wall presses for perfection on the Statue of David. The 4500 sq. ft. mural on the Orpheum Theater in downtown Flagstaff Az. has consumed artists Sky Black, Margaret Dewar, and R.E. Wall's life for nearly two years. The final unveiling has now been set for Saturday November 7th from 2pm til 5pm. We look forward to an unforgetable conclusion to this epic effort.
