IG Winery Mural
This hand-painted mural is a dynamic addition to downtown that will easily pirouette its way to your list of favorite murals. With rich colors artist, Rian Kasner captures the symphony of flavor present in each IG Winery blend with elegant dancers forming from the splashing wine.

You Belong Mural
This large and dynamic mural on the side of the Bristlecone Company by artist Rian Kasner is a reflection of the values of this small business. Bristlecone strives for inclusion, connection, and a sense of belonging within their community.
The mural can be found on the south side of the Bristlecone building at 67 West Center Street, Cedar City, UT.
Suh’dusting, The Cedar People
This mural was unveiled on Veteran’s day. Artist Daniel Growler is a member of the Cedar Band of Paiutes of the Paiute Indian Tribe of Utah and was born and raised in Cedar City. Describing himself as an “Indian Graphic Artist”, he specializes in Native storytelling. The art installation is not a direct translation of the Paiute origin stories but is Growler’s modern artistic interpretation.
The mural can be found on the east side of Cedar Sports at 97 West Center Street, Cedar City, UT.
Cedar Breaks National Monument – Lone Coyote
To find our third mural we’re going to take a little walk around the building. On the west side of Cedar Sports, you’ll find a black and white depiction of Cedar Breaks National Monument by artist Lone Coyote. The mural covers 450 square feet and was hand-painted.
This mural can be found at 97 West Center Street on the Cedar Sports building.
Johnson Arts Center Mural
The newest addition to the bright and beautiful murals in Cedar City was painted by local artist Zoë Petersen on the side of the new non-profit Johnson Center for Community Arts & Education. The bright and musical mural reflects the variety of community arts programs available through this space.
The mural can be found at 59 North 100 West in Cedar City, UT.
Cedar City Mural – Center Street
This bright piece is all about Cedar City and we love the vibe! Completed in 2021 by artist Rian Kasner, this hand-painted mural is a bright addition to Center Street. Their incredible artwork can be found at Bristlecone too, as Rian was the artist behind their mural (company name and logo) on the side of their building!
The mural can be found on the wall between Centro Woodfired Pizza and the Pastry Pub.
Gateway to America’s Most Colorful National Parks
Take a quick walk around the corner to 16 North 100 West to find a colorful highlight of nearby destinations! This three-panel mural was installed as part of a Spike150 event last year, celebrating 150 years since the completion of the railroad and the golden spike. With so many national parks within a few hours of Cedar City, the railroad coming to town was a big step in opening Cedar City up as a tourist destination. This mural is a replica of a sign that used to stand in Lund, Utah, and highlights three nearby attractions.
This mural can be found at the Frontier Homestead State Park Museum (635 N Main Street)
Paulina Phelps Lyman
Behind the Prestige Realty office, you’ll find a mural painted by Brooke Smart that tells the story of a local suffragist who’s pretty incredible! Paulina Phelps Lyman was a midwife who delivered hundreds of babies in the 1800s. A suffragist and a doctor, “Aunt Pauline” was a great supporter of women’s rights in Iron County.
This mural can be found at 121 North Main Street behind the Prestige Realty office
This bright piece captures the beautiful spirit of southern Utah. If you look closely you can see the red rock formations of Cedar Breaks, flats of the Markagunt Plateau, and, of course, some happy little bees.
This mural can be found on the Coal Creek Walking Trail at 581 North Main Street
