WarMurals.com is a military art history and phootogragy project dedicated to the preservation of deployment art created the Global War On Terror and stories behind them in hopes that it can memorialize and preserve at least a part the conflict for future generations.

Thousands of these murals painted by the military for the military scattered across the world that are destroyed or left in a state of decay to fade away in the harsh climates they are left in. While the barrier art tradition continues, many now only survive in photographs as a snapshot of a unit's identity, and a monument to a life changing experience for those that served.

Please enjoy the over 1200 murals currently included in this site and join in sharing, collecting, and cataloging this unique artworks and the memories they represent.
