Greetings from Litchfield, Illinois Mural on Route 66

Greetings from Litchfield, Illinois! Visit the Greetings from Litchfield, Illinois postcard-style mural on your Route 66 road trip.

Greetings Tour is a national art project that seeks to add postcard-style murals across the country. Made up of muralist Victor Ving and photographer Lisa Beggs, Greetings Tour travels around the US in an RV to create the large-scale works of art. Mimicking the classic “Greetings from” postcards, they created large scale versions that spell out the cities’ names and decorate them with local landmarks. AT every stop they collaboarate with local businesses, residents, and artists to create a one-of-a-kind stamp on the community. Over 40 murals have been created in more than 20 states and their goal is to have at least one in all 50.

The Greetings from Litchfield mural was added on Route 66 in April and May, 2021. It’s the second one they’ve done in Illinois and sixth along the Mother Road, with others being located in Chicago, Oklahoma City, Albuquerque, Pasadena and Santa Monica.

True to their mission, this mural features local landmarks, including the Historic Litchfield Carnegie Library Building, Ariston Café, the Wabash Train Depot, Shoal Creek Conservation Area, and the Lake Lou Yaeger Recreational Area.
