Turning walls of a city into a giant sized painting is an idea that has been kicking around in history for a long, long time. This book documents mural art in both rural and urban Minnesota. These mural have been created by professional artists as well as sign painters and neighborhood amateurs who paint a wall as a group activity. After a recap of the history of mural painting Moira Harris maps out where each of the murals are with the photographic display. Brief biographies are included for the muralists that were known. The United State Information Agency selected Museum of the Streets to be a part of the "Visual Arts USA Exhibit" (1987), representing the best in American Publishing, and was exhibited in 50 countries throughout the world.
