S. Elaine Lyttleton, founder and president of The Mural Project and Chair of the Ramona Art and Wine Festival, said, “We are pleased to connect the growing Ramona wine industry and the artists of our area in order to create a more enjoyable Main Street for all of us to appreciate.”

The first project completed under the auspices of The Mural Project was the Casey Tibbs Mural painted by John & Jeanne Whalen on the Town & Country Real Estate office to honor Casey Duane Tibbs (1929-1990), an American cowboy, rodeo performer, stunt man, actor, director and producer. Other projects include the Equine Mural on the Northeast corner of 5th & Main; and the Historic Commerce Mural on the east side of the old Ramona Pharmacy building on Main Street.
