MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (WBOY) — Main Street Morgantown is celebrating the completion of a recent beautification project that includes three murals in the downtown area.

Most recently, artist Ali Williams completed her mural “Trusting the Mystery” on Fayette Street. It depicts an owl and a rainbow. According to a release from Main Street Morgantown, it explores the interconnectedness of life and nature and “the spirit inside ourselves that calls us to follow the path of our own colors.”

Williams’ piece is beside “Golden Wind” by Bernie Wilke, which is at the corner of High and Fayette Streets. The artist said that the piece, which depicts a girl moving from behind a brick wall with a colorful ribbon, “symbolically shows diverse people following their passions in the context of downtown Morgantown and the surrounding hills.” The “Golden Wind” that the girl releases touches everyone as it moves through the design, Wilke said.

The third piece, by West Virginia artist Elijah Pollard, depicts social activist Harriet Tubman and celebrates her as an abolitionist. Inspired by the former 1980s Underground Railroad bar at 123 Pleasant Street, the mural sits right across the street.

Muralists were selected by Main Street Morgantown and worked with the community and business owners to complete the final designs. The beautification project was funded by Organizational Arts Grant and FirstEnergy, according to the release.
