The City of Madison and Madison Visionary Partners have recently unveiled two new murals in the City of Madison, as part of the first phase of its new mural trail. 

Here’s what we know:

About these new murals

The first of the new murals, “March of the Monarch,” is located at the Avenue at 92 Shorter Street, just outside of Honest Coffee Roasters.

Created by local artist Ann Moeller, it pays homage to the monarch butterfly—Alabama’s state insect and a symbol of transformation and community, which also represents Madison’s own growth and transformation.

The second mural, “Madison Station,” is located on the side of 14 Main Street in historic downtown Madison.

This mural celebrate’s Madison history and is specifically designed to engage children through the colorful, artistic style of North Alabama artist Sonya Clemons, also known as the Art Lady. 

“Public art enhances the quality of life for our community, and these first murals highlight the City of Madison in thoughtful and unique ways. As Mayor and Council, we appreciate Madison Visionary Partners for their efforts in raising funds and launching the Madison Mural Trail. The local artists MVP commissioned have truly captured the heart of Madison through their incredible talent!”

Mayor Paul Finley

Each mural will have its own dedicated webpage on the MVP site that will delve further into their subject matter.

Partnering with community organizations like the Huntsville Botanical Garden and the Madison Station Historic Society to provide the site’s information, MVP also plans to offer educational programming and activities to complement the murals.
