The best way to spend an evening in Vernon during the early 1900's was going to see a concert, play, or moving picture. This mural depicts the first production by the Vernon Musical and Dramatic Society called, The Geisha.

From the Geisha

The Downtown Vernon Association has invested considerable resources into the creation of the 27 amazing works of art that grace our downtown buildings. These murals depict the history, culture, scenery, and folklore that made Vernon what it is today.

The mural project was a multi-year collaborative effort that included youth employment, revitalization, and heritage conservation strategies.
