American Mural Project (AMP)

The American Mural Project (AMP) celebrates “the art of work” through exhibits, events, and educational programs. Its centerpiece is the largest indoor collaborative artwork in the world: a five-story, 120-foot-long mural that pays tribute to the ingenuity and dedication of diverse American workers on a grand scale. More than 15,000 children and adults have contributed collaborative pieces to the three-dimensional mural.

AMP was launched in 2001 by artist Ellen Griesedieck to inspire, educate, invite collaboration, and reveal to people of all ages the many contributions they can make to the world as workers. Each quarter, AMP highlights a new aspect of the permanent “art of work” mural exhibit in its tours, family activities, and events, exploring the convergence of work and creativity in new ways.

AMP’s education programs spark the creative working spirit of kids, teens, and adults. Live events showcase the creativity and contributions of workers from all walks of life.
