Sharing Stories of Everyday Good

American Mural Project

American Mural Project

Launched in 2002 by artist Ellen Griesedieck, the AMP is creating the largest indoor collaborative artwork in the world: a mural 120-feet long, 48-feet high, and up to ten feet deep. The mural is a tribute to American workers and highlights what has defined the country over the last century. It seeks to inspire, to educate, to invite collaboration, and to reveal to people of all ages the many contributions they can make to American culture. Nothing like it exists in the world. More than 15,000 children and adults have helped create pieces of the mural, which will be housed in two former mill buildings on Whiting Street in Winsted, Connecticut.
