Shut the Back Door!

Shut the Back Door! 


About the Project:

The goal of this project is to increase foot traffic and visibility of overlooked spaces in downtown areas, by creating an unexpected art destination. The door murals will be a featured exhibit and judged by People's Choice, during Fall Fest (Saturday, October 8th, 2022).


Interested in Participating?

The Shut the Back Door project repurposes alley and back-of-building doors and turns them into a discovery-driven gallery. Building owners will be in charge of the creation, application/installment, removal, and financing of the door project. If interested in participating, please fill out the form provided. Murals must be installed by October 3rd. Judging will be on Saturday, October 8th, during Fall Fest.


Any business can participate!

We want as many businesses to be involved. Don't have an alley or back door? Decorate any door and display it in a fun way! Any business in Jackson County is encouraged to participate.


Want to particpate, but don't have a business on the Square?

A map of all the doors will be provided to guests that attend Fall Fest. We want to encourage all to visit all the doors, but most visibility will be around the Square on Saturday. If using a temporary door, bring it to Fall Fest, or display an enlarged photo, or get creative with how to attract people to your business!
