Granby buildings coming to life with vibrant murals

Artists have arrived and are making Granby their home over the next few days as they complete eight colorful murals. It’s a celebration of art and community during the RKY MTN WALLS Art Festival.

The town of Granby and the Granby Chamber of Commerce are turning the festival into a week-long featured event, with activities planned through next week. While passersby may get a glimpse at some of the art as they’re being completed, the finished works will be highlighted during public walking tours Saturday and Sunday.

Mural locations include on the buildings of the Sky-Hi News annex, Lion Head Coffee, Grand County Board of Realtors, Spirits-N-Things Liquor, Pearl Dragon, Shear Design, L.A. Eatery and Westside 40/Granby Visitors Center.

Work is progressing on the mural on the Sky-Hi News annex building, the only mural that will be directly on and facing Highway 40.
