Indiana’s attractions and Southwest Indiana’s entrance to Southeast Illinois. The
location is a central location in the heart of Mt. Vernon located on the north side of
the Rosenbaum building visible to commuters traveling South, East and West.
The Mt. Vernon Mural Project is an inspirational community project developed in
collaboration with Mt. Vernon high school’s Innovation and Open Source Learning

inspirational community project meant to bring all generations together to express
a positive regional impact while embracing the city’s history and beauty. The mural

the downtown Mt. Vernon City area.

project and refreshed to original state.
