Mural Durham connects Durham through creativity, one mural at a time. Use #MuralDurham when you spot a worthy mural!

The Mural Durham Archive was created in October 2016 in response to the growing number of murals popping up in and around downtown Durham. The texts and images contained in the pages of this website serve as record of each mural and those who helped to create them. Help make this a true “living” archive—please send us your stories, memories, or additional information about a muralby emailing Reneé Cagnina Haynes at
