About Us

Since 2004, Clark County Mural Society has been on a mission to increase tourism and improve commerce through mural art, and so far it’s working. Our team of artists and volunteers have been:

  • Inspiring and energizing our town and uniting our community by encouraging participation from all ages and walks of life
  • Beautifying our streets while decreasing vandalism and eliminating graffiti
  • Creating a greater appreciation of the visual arts and our historical roots while establishing the face and identity of Vancouver, Washington

In 2002, Jerry Rolling and Nikki White began walking with a group on Friday mornings. During one of their walks, Jerry told Nikki about Chemainus, a small town in British Columbia, Canada that revived its economic fortunes after the local mill downsized by painting murals on every available downtown wall. When Jerry suggested someone do the same with downtown Vancouver; Nikki responded, “How about us?” and continued to ask that same question for the next year and a half.

In January 2004, Nikki and Jerry formalized the Clark County Mural Society as a nonprofit and quickly co-opted Guy Drennan, an experienced local muralist to paint our first mural, the Remembrance Wall.
