Fichter's more recent projects include "Native Waters", a 350 ft. mural on DeKalb Ave in Atlanta Georgia, which was painted with over a 100 community volunteers. This environmental mural traces the journey of the rivers and watersheds of Georgia from the location of the mural, which is on the Eastern Sub-Continental Divide. Recently, Fichter collaborated with muralist Joshua Winer to design and paint "The Wayne History Mural" on the outside of an art deco movie theater in Wayne, Michigan. In 2013 the same team of Fichter and Winer received a commission from Texas Tech University in Lubbock Texas to design and create a large scale 4 panel mosaic on a new building at the Larry Combest Health and Wellness Center. In 2021, Fichter worked with artists Yetti Frenkel and Joshua Winer to design and build two large glass mosaics for the Lucretia and Joseph Brown Elementary School in Marblehead, MA. During the same year he painted the 80 ft. long mural in Chelsea MA, called "Chelsea Resilient: Call and Response Through The Ages".
