Tucumcari has more than 40 murals and new ones are being created all the time! We have redefined “painting the town.” Most of these beautiful works of art were created by Doug & Sharon Quarles. The blank external walls on buildings around town have been turned into colorful, detailed paintings for you to enjoy. These paintings depict different pieces of our community and landscape. The Tucumcari/Quay County Chamber of Commerce has created the map to help you with your painted treasure. Click Here to get a copy of the mural map!
We hope you have fun exploring our community and the murals! Please follow all traffic laws and be respectful of local businesses.
