Sometimes the most groundbreaking ideas come from the smallest communities. In a town where everyone knows your name, people find innovative ways to uplift not just themselves, but also their friends and neighbors. See how local artist Jason Nessen immortalizes his community in paint on the walls of Tremonton City.

Tremonton has a history of murals, dating back to a vigilante artist who began painting on abandoned buildings in the 1970s. These days, local artist Jason Nessen has taken up the helm. Since his first work in 2003, Jason has painted 12 murals around the city, featuring the Tremonton Fire Department, the high school softball team, the family of a local business owner, and more. We’ll see how people like Jason have helped Tremonton City win Best of State for Public Art four years in a row.
