The Beyond Walls Street Art Festival 2019 took place from July 22 – August 3, bringing in talented artists all over the world to create poignant and breathtaking murals that will add to the growing vibrancy of Lynn’s landscape.
Beyond Walls introduces public art and curated experiences into the fabric of their communities. They partner with local organizations, municipalities, community members, and experts to help design, produce, and manage the many projects and programs being produced now. All of their projects, from the Street Art Festival to the many artistic lighting projects, are executed to enhance the local, physical landscape, drive positive change, and to bolster community engagement.
This year, the festival saw artists from Puerto Rico, Portugal, Australia, the U.K., Colombia, and right here in the U.S., some even from Lynn. Here are the faces behind the work and the murals they created.
