Murals of Boyertown

A Special Kind of Place

One of David Larson's most popular paintings, “A Special Kind of Place,” appears as a mural painted by artist Robert L. Williams on the side of the building at the South Reading Avenue entrance to Boyertown’s Town Center parking lot. This painting features a view of Boyertown’s spring landscape from a porch, originally one of a series of four paintings depicting the town during each season of the year.

State Theatre Mural

In 2006, artist Robert Williams and Boyertown Area High School (BASH) Students researched Boyertown's history to select a few glimpses of small town life over the decades. Some features of the mural include the Keystone Fire Company, a Carver Dairy wagon, and one of the oldest homes in the borough. Several other hidden references to our history can be found within the painting. The mural can be found on the side of the historic State Theatre on North Reading Avenue.

Bear Fever

The Bear Fever Project began in 2003 with a vision from Jane and Paul Stahl to "promote community spirit and cohesiveness through participation in a unique public art project - the creation of life-sized fiberglass sculptures of our school district's mascot". The bears would be sponsored by assorted businesses, organizations or individuals, and decorated by artists, spreading all over the Boyertown area. Today, over 80 bears have made their homes in front of businesses, inside schools, and in private collections. Visit today to see how many you can find!
