Mamaroneck Historical Murals

The Mamaroneck Historical Society is proud to have served as the primary sponsor of the Mamaroneck Historical Murals Project, which led to the installation of five spectacular murals in April. 

We hope you’ve had the opportunity to view and appreciate each of the five murals.  The subjects of the five murals were selected by the Mamaroneck Historical Society and executed by international street artists selected and guided by Street Art for Mankind, the local not-for-profit that previously produced and curated the Larchmont murals. Please visit our website and SAM’s website for additional information about the murals and the artists, and the “Behind the Wall” app on SAM’s website for a self-guided tour of the murals.

We’ve raised $19,000 to date, mostly before the murals were installed. We are now seeking to raise additional funds that will be used to bridge the funding gap from the first phase and to fund new murals in the second phase of the project. Proceeds will be evenly split between the first and second phase murals. 

Please join your neighbors in bringing public art and our shared local history to the Village of Mamaroneck. Please take a moment now to make a donation, either by mailing us a check or by donating online at the Mamaroneck Historical Society website page for the murals project.

We will be hosting a guided tour of the murals at the end of October, at which time we will assess the success of our fundraising efforts and plans for adding new murals next spring. 

Thank you for your kind consideration.

Mamaroneck History and Heritage:

The Mamaroneck Historical Murals will feature five fascinating stories of our Village, spanning hundreds of years. These topics and themes were selected by The Mamaroneck Historical Society to illustrate key elements in our past and symbolize the character of our community.

  • Native American Origins. We are a village proud of its origins, the pre-European peoples who lived on and around Mamaroneck Harbor

  • A Village on the Sound. From fishing and boat building to leisure, our beautiful waterfront has been important to our economy and development

  • A Storied Art Scene. For more than a century, Mamaroneck has hosted significant cultural figures and institutions representing a range of artistic forms

  • A Community Built on Diversity. For centuries, people of diverse ethnicity and origin have made the Friendly Village their home.

  • The Skinny House. The inspiring story of an iconic Village landmark showing friendship and community during hard times.

 

Team:
