Churchill County Museum Seeks Volunteer Artists To Paint Mural

Museum mural

The Churchill County Museum, working in conjunction with the Churchill Community Coalition, is looking for youth volunteers to paint its first panel of the new “Our Community, Our Stories” mural on the south side of the museum building located at 1050 S. Maine Street.

“We will create six murals reflecting Churchill County’s history and the people who live here by focusing on topics such as agriculture, Native Americans, NAS Fallon, and local events,” said Teri Hedgpeth, museum director. “By partnering with the Churchill Community Coalition, we hope to bring awareness to the mental health of Fallon’s youth by having them not only help create the individual murals, but also have them place their handprints underneath each mural.”

She added that the hope is that the effort will reflect that through our different backgrounds, we are one community, and will open dialogue regarding youth mental health.

Volunteer painters are needed on the following dates:

  • Friday, April 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Monday, April 11 and 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Saturday April 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

This effort is supported by a Nevada Humanities matching grant. Museum Curator Marilyn Goble is the project lead and has lined up volunteer artists to design the murals. Volunteer youth are needed to help with the painting effort.

Please contact Goble at (775)423-3677 with any questions.
