Conceived and installed in 1979, the Women’s Mural is perhaps the most photographed piece of public art in the Helena community. Painted by Montana artists Delores Dinsmore, Ann Appleby and Marilyn Sternberg, with the assistance of other community members, it represents the role women have held in Helena’s history. This mural is the largest thematic art installation of its kind in the community.
The women who created this mural have beautifully told all our personal histories from a feminine point of view. The next time you pass by, perhaps you will be compelled to stop and reflect on the lives of some of the women represented in the mural, or women you have known who have personally touched you.
