Art on the Rise – Worcester’s New Wall Murals

Worcester’s art scene got a major boost a few weeks ago as they hosted POW! WOW! Worcester. It was a great event helping to foster community engagement and further establish Worcester as a visitor and cultural destination. The ten day celebration featured the curation of 10 large scale wall murals around the city. The artists were selected from all over the world, some from as far away as Spain and Nepal.

POW! WOW! Worldwide, a producer of international mural festivals, featured Worcester in its first ever East Coast festival. The festival was designed to involve a diverse audience with multiple styles of murals, providing local and international artists with a wide array of local building facades to design. Ancillary events took place throughout the city and included an artist talk, art fundraiser, and musical performances.

POW! WOW! Worcester is committed to making the city a more culturally dynamic place by activating spaces, engaging in the arts, and generating pride in the Downtown area.
