History of the Walldogs: The Walldogs are a group of talented sign and mural artists from all over the world. The Walldog movement began in 1993 when dozens of artists gathered in Allerton, Iowa to paint several large historic wall advertisements. The tradition of painting wall advertisements is continued today by this modern pack of artists as they paint in the design styles of the past. From the colors they use to the art styles they practice, these artists capture the history and culture of every town they visit.
In June of 2015, the Walldogs gathered in Delavan, Wisconsin, and transformed the town with beautiful murals bringing to life the varied history of Delavan. Come see for yourself the impeccable work and artistry and learn a bit about Delavan that you probably didn't know.
