GuitarTown Murals

Beginning in June of 2013, Waukesha GuitarTown began presenting a series of murals that  focus on Les Paul and the history of Waukesha.  These “GuitarTown murals” have been painted by the nationally acclaimed Walldogs, a group of sign and mural artists who have done many projects around the United States.  Some murals have also been painted by local artists, including some artists who designed and painted guitars.

The GuitarTown murals have become the fabric of downtown Waukesha in the same way the 10-foot Gibson Les Paul guitars.  The murals are part of the walking tour of guitars, adding artistic appeal and vibrant attraction to the Waukesha GuitarTown project.


Mural Locations

Initially five walls were chosen in downtown Waukesha for the GuitarTown murals. In 2013 a second phase of mural paintings were done and now there is a total of 14 different mural locations which are listed below.
