“Greetings from Fargo” Mural Completion Celebration

The Fargo Downtown Neighborhood Association (DNA) is pleased to announce the completion of the Greetings Tour 2021 Community Mural Grant. Everyone is invited to the Completion Celebration for the mural, scheduled for June 27, 2021, from noon to 2 pm on the corner of 1st Ave. N and Roberts St.
Vendors will include Michele’s Table, A Crêpe Place, and Front Street Taproom, with live music by Jessica Vines.
Fargo’s “Greetings from Fargo” mural will be painted on the Roberts Street wall of the Dakotah Pioneer Center at the corner of 1st Avenue North and Roberts Street in downtown Fargo on
June 21-27. This mural project will connect Fargo to communities across the United States with the same goal: to celebrate community art and build a sense of hometown pride.
The Greetings Tour is a nationwide mural project creating iconic landmarks through public art. The project, by muralist Victor Ving and photographer Lisa Beggs, began in 2015 with the intent of creating a “Greetings from” mural in all 50 states. Ving and Beggs also launched a yearly mural grant, gifting one of their murals to organizations that have a positive impact in their local communities. Fargo and the DNA are the first recipient. Ving and Beggs collaborate with a local artist to create one of the letters. The DNA Board selected Moorhead artist Anna Johnson to collaborate on the mural.
