Babe WallsBabe WallsBabe Walls

Babe Walls came to the inaugural Adams County PRIDE and painted seven murals with amazing local artists. Each wall was a collaboration between two artists, and a community wall gave young future babes space to create.

The walls are on display at Riverdale Regional Park for the next six months and will then be moved to new homes throughout the county. We’ll share those locations when they go on tour!
