The City of Gallup started having murals in the 1930's by the WPA. Outdoor murals are a proud tradition here. In the early 2000's various local artists were commissioned to retell Gallup's stories though a series of murals on downtown buildings. They have a map of the murals in their Visitor Guide and we decided to follow the map starting with Mural 1 through 11. In order to remember which mural was which, we decided to do them in order which meant we had to backtrack quite a bit but it was good exercise.
