Building Tours!

Activities and Demonstrations!

Perfectly positioned at the heart of the Lake Champlain waterfront, the abandoned industrial relic of Burlington, Vermont’s former Moran coal power plant is poised to make a comeback as a world-class cultural hive and hub of lakefront recreation. To raise awareness for the project and demonstrate the potential of what the building will become, New Moran, Inc. has hosted a wide range of artists, musicians and creatives to use the building in its current state. Building on the work of their first artist in residence, Mary Lacy, and several musical collaborations with Signal Kitchen and Higher Ground, including the band Guster, thanks to Higher Ground, VermontPBS and Moran Champion Ryan Miller – this mural represents the continued evolution of Moran Plant’s artistic program and redevelopment process.

Once completed, the Moran Plant will become a lakefront cultural landmark, housing a public market hall, 1,500-person capacity community event space, art gallery, and collaborative work spaces for mission-driven businesses and nonprofits.
