School Mural Project

Students from Lewiston High School, Edward Little High School, Next STEP and Tree Street Youth partnered with Maine MILL to create murals for the walls of the Bates Mill Complex reflecting the theme of our 2023 exhibition “Who We Are.”  These beautiful murals, created by children in grades PK-12, reflect their honest and hopeful vision for who we are as a community and are the result of months of creative hard work.  We invite you to view these murals on display outside of our museum interior entrance.
