The Multicultural Mural is a cultural education and outreach project of the Moab Valley Multicultural Center (MVMC). It is the result of a collaborative community project designed to create an outdoor diversity classroom for people of all ages, languages and abilities.
The Multicultural Mural was created by 10 local artists and countless community volunteers, thanks to the financial support of several generous sponsors and grants. The MVMC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and has been serving the community since 2007.
We invite you to learn about the featured change leaders and hope you will be inspired by their peaceful advocacy and activism!
