During the week of June 22-26, 2016 over 150 artists from across the United States as well as Canada, New Zealand, Scotland, England and Australia descended upon Marshall leaving behind 16 historic murals and a custom glass piece. Known as the Walldogs, the loose affiliation of sign painters, graphic artists and other talented individuals reunite annually to entertain and transform a community with their special brand of artistic interpretation, entertainment, and friendship.
The Marshall Chamber of Commerce had been working with Walldog Leader Scott Carl Lindley since 2012 to coordinate the meet, raise funds to support the project, and develop the themes that made Marshall's heritage come to life. Lindley assembled his team of project leaders to design and manage each mural topic.

A brochure that includes the history of each mural, a map and a list of hidden items can be picked up at the Chamber Office

(708 Archer Ave) or at surrounding business's.
