When the former BB&T Bank building at 37 S. Main Street was demolished, it exposed a large blank wall on the side of the Harford County Sheriff's Office that begged for the stroke of an artist's brush. The wall overlooks the site of a new parking lot, a small garden and a walking path to the public parking garage.
The Town offered a mural project for bid to qualified artists and contractors. Marshall Adams submitted the winning proposal, selected by a committee of Town, County and Sheriff's Office representatives. A start date will be announced.

"Mr. Adams' mural concept has a strong theme centered on how downtown Bel Air of today has grown from the strong foundations laid down in the past," says Kevin Small, Director of Planning for the Town of Bel Air. "The image is vibrant and festive and brings a feel of movement and vitality to this parking lot that may also be the site of future events such as the Farmer's Market."
The mural will also form a backdrop to the newly-opened Main Street garage entrance.
