Thank you to all of you who participated in our 2022 Wine & Walls Outdoor MuralFest!!
What an amazing experience to watch 12 muralists paint original designs on the walls of the historic Cotton Mill facility, as well as the five canvas mural artists who created art for auction The new south side murals join multiple murals on the north side of the Cotton Mill building, which are part of the MillHouse Public Art Program. See their designs below. You can come see their murals and take an iphone selfie with friends. If you'd like to book a professional photography shoot, the Cotton Mill film/photography fees apply.

The McKinney Cotton Mill is a century-old property that has played a vital role in the McKinney community. The industrial equipment and unique features that once made the place the largest denim manufacturer in the World still remains today, making it a one-of-a-kind destination for artists, businesses, weddings, corporate events, and art festivals.
His design represents the day with the bright and iconic sun of Texas, and the Moon and starry nights in Mckinney. Look closely in the design to see if you can find some of the attributes the artist believes make Texas a great state: Freedom, Strength, Love, and Nature.
