Utah Wildlife Walls

29+ monumental murals across Utah

How it Started...

Utah Wildlife Walls is a collaboration between Utah artist Chris Peterson, writer Brett Prettyman and the Utah Wildlife Federation.

How it's going!

With six walls complete halfway through 2024, we are excited for all of the projects we have in the works for this fall and next year, including Logan, Heber, downtown Salt Lake and Antelope Island. We are exploring many more opportunities with interested nonprofit partners, property owners, and local governments. If you'd like to collaborate with us on a monumental wildlife mural, shoot us a note!
