Imagine entering a small rural Smoky Mountain town and discovering big Art panels all over the downtown buildings! The creative concept of the Valley River Arts Guild is to showcase 5'x3' framed canvas art as an Outdoor Art Gallery on the outside brick facades of the old historic walls of downtown Murphy, North Carolina, to be enjoyed 24/7 in an outdoor setting. The Valley River Arts Guild has created the MAX Project: Murphy Art Xplosion.

We have designed a beautiful logo and have begun hanging art outdoors at the Murphy Art Center and 14 locations throughout downtown Murphy. Start your Art Trail walk from the MAC, Murphy Art Center, located at 12 Peachtree Street, on the Square, downtown Murphy. Continue down each street to discover all of the gorgeous outdoor canvas panels which change seasonally.
