Art Town Ely, Nevada Murals are a must see


Ely, Nevada on the Eastern end of US 50  - the loneliest highway - boasts a superb mural tour. The little town hosted the 2004 Global Mural Convention which attracted artists from many countries. Some painted murals alongside local artists. The murals depict numerous aspects of the cultures and industries that built the area, e.g. the Basque shepherds,  the pony express and mining. It's a great example of wonderful public art bringing life to a small town. Mark Ely, Nevada on your bucket list, it's a great experience. Close by is the beautiful Great Basin National Park. Plus driving Hwy 50 is an experience of stark beauty and endless vistas. For more info check out the website and Nevada website
