Public Art

Lebanese Heritage Mural by Kevin James

51 Main Street

lebanesemuralA tribute to Waterville’s Lebanese community (the oldest and largest in the State of Maine), this mural was commissioned by Waterville Main Street, created by artist Kevin James, and funded by dozens of local contributors. Waterville’s Lebanese community helped the city grow with their labor, their church, their businesses, and their community involvement. Many of Downtown Waterville’s oldest businesses were started by the Lebanese, and one of our City’s most famous sons, George Mitchell, came from this community.


Ticonic by Roger L. Majorowicz

The Concourse

ticonicUnveiled in 1997, “Ticonic” is perhaps Waterville’s most prominent piece of public art. The design of the bright, stainless wind-powered sculpture was specifically selected with Waterville’s creative economy in mind. Whitefield artist Roger Majorowicz, who put 1,600 hours of labor into the work, said at the dedication that he chose the sculpture’s distinctive style because “I wanted to activate this city.”
