IllinoisRoadside Attraction

Greetings from Litchfield, Illinois! Visit the postcard-style Greetings From Litchfield Mural on your Route 66 road trip.

Greetings Tour is a national art project that seeks to add postcard-style murals across the country. Made up of muralist Victor Ving and photographer Lisa Beggs, Greetings Tour travels around the US in an RV to create the large-scale works of art. Mimicking the classic “Greetings from” postcards, they created large scale versions that spell out the cities’ names and decorate them with local landmarks. At every stop they collaboarate with local businesses, residents, and artists to create a one-of-a-kind stamp on the community. Over 40 murals have been created in more than 20 states and their goal is to have at least one in all 50.

The Greetings from Litchfield mural was added on Route 66 in April and May, 2021. It’s the second mural the group has done in Illinois (the first being one in Chicago) and sixth along the Mother Road, with others being located in Oklahoma City, Albuquerque, Pasadena and Santa Monica.

True to their mission, this postcard mural features local landmarks, including the Historic Litchfield Carnegie Library Building, Ariston Café, the Wabash Train Depot, Shoal Creek Conservation Area, and the Lake Lou Yaeger Recreational Area.
