Harriet Tubman Mural

Would you like to celebrate the anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s 200th Birthday this year in a way that makes an impact for future generations?

The Harriet Tubman Boosters  raised money to install this beautiful mural in Auburn, NY portraying Tubman's life from the Civil War through her 54 years living and working in Auburn.  We know that Harriet Tubman was the most famous conductor on the Underground Railroad, but it's important that people learn about the rest of her life. She made many more contributions, including serving as a nurse, scout and spy during the Civil War, establishing the Home for Aged and Indigent Negroes, and speaking on behalf of Women's Suffrage.

The mural design, “Harriet Tubman: Her Life in Freedom,” uses the power of art to both educate and inspire by sharing the full depth of Tubman’s amazing life story in a single image. A plaque will accompany the mural. This plaque will link to a website, www.TubmanMural.org, that expounds upon the many aspects of her rich legacy that are overshadowed by her legendary work on the Underground Railroad.


The cost to create and install the mural is approximately $40,000. We have raised this amount from over 200 generous individual donors, business, and organizations. We are currently raising funds for the sign and a mural maintenance fund.

Our Trailblazer Mural Donors--the 75 donors who contributed $100 or more--received a 1st  Edition signed and numbered 8x10 print of the mural artwork.

Whether you donate $20 (where we hope to see Tubman's face in the future) or $2,000, or anything in between, every donation will make a difference!

The mural artist, Arthur Hutchinson, was born and raised by Jamaican parents in Auburn, New York. He attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, where he received a bachelor's degree in architecture. After working as an architect for over 10 years, he left his job to pursue his dream of being an artist. He returned to his hometown to share what he learned and inspire others to follow dreams of their own.
