Tremonton’s Very Own “Rockwell”
Norman Rockwell was an American artist whose paintings are enjoyed by millions in the United States and the world over. Rockwell’s art captured the moments and emotions of everyday life and some extraordinary events in America’s past.
We too have a rich history. It is a story of ordinary people living everyday lives; then at some point they decide that’s not enough and they do something extraordinary. It is our remarkable past that helps to shape who we are today.
Jason Nessen, a Tremonton native and artist, helped us capture the legacy of those extraordinary people and events — one wall at a time. His larger than life murals can be seen all over Tremonton. And now, others have noticed Tremonton’s murals. Tremonton City and Jason Nessen recently were awarded the “Best in State” award for Public Art.
Below are pictures and brief descriptions of the murals that Jason painted. Some are easy to find as you drive through town. Some are a tucked away on the wall of a building in a quiet corner. We like it that way. That’s part of the fun, so take a few minutes and scroll through Tremonton’s historic murals. Enjoy!
