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.

Press Statement:  No Place for Hate Mural update from Building A Better Boyertown   March 6, 2023
Building a Better Boyertown (BaBB) would like to update the Boyertown Community on the “No Place for Hate” mural located on the Rita’s Water Ice building at 309 E. Philadelphia Avenue.  In case you were wondering why there is such a delay, the mural committee is re-envisioning the current design along with our community partners and BaBB’s Vision Statement to show that Boyertown is a “welcoming, vibrant, and engaging community for people from all walks of life.”  

We hope to provide a new, more inclusive, current design to reflect what a welcoming community Boyertown is and to promote harmony.  We plan to finish the mural this year and wanted to let you know that something new and exciting will be coming! 
Questions regarding this project can be directed to Manager Ellen Martignetti at 610-369-3054 or

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 75 bears have made their homes in front of businesses, inside schools, and in private collections. Visit today to see how many you can find!
