Dean Mosher

Dean Mosher’s Alabama Bicentennial Murals opened January 4th to a crowd of over 700 attendees! His latest work “The Battle of Fort Mims” was unveiled in a private ceremony and then displayed for the very first time at First Friday Art Walk. What a way to start the New Year!!

We are grateful to have so many people support this new project and want to thank all of those who came to the first event. Please check out these sites for additional images of what took place!

“Dean is so much more than just a painter, he is a true “artist-historian”. Behind each of his murals is enough research to write a book!”

“The ‘Battle of Fort Mims’ and ‘Tribute to the Merchant Marine’ are new additions to Mosher’s exhibit paying tribute to the founding of Fairhope, the University of Alabama, Alabama’s veterans and other historic moments.”

Bring on the Field Trips!

Amy McClellan’s class from Foley Intermediate had a surprise visitor during their field trip last week at the Eastern Shore Art Center! While they were diligently sketching out Da Vinci style inventions with Community Outreach Director Nancy Raia, none other than the current ESAC exhibitor Dean Mosher strolled in. Imagine their faces when they went upstairs into the gallery and saw his Alabama Bicentennial exhibit! They were extremely attentive, raising hands with a million marvelous questions for him about each and every mural.


The Alabama Bicentennial Murals are on exhibit until February 23, 2019. To schedule a guided tour, please contact the Eastern Shore Art Center at (251) 928-2228 or You never know, it may be from the artist himself!

Look to February 16th for a special Gallery Talk with the artist himself! Dean will also have signed Mobile Mardi Gras prints for sale just in time for the Mardi Gras season….

Murals are funded by the Alabama Tourism Department, the Alabama Community Service Grant Program sponsored by Representative Randy Davis, and the Baldwin County Legislative Delegation.
