POW! WOW! Worcester 2017

Between August 25 through September 3, POW! WOW! Worcester will produce at least 29 murals throughout the city of Worcester.

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 city. The weeklong festival will bridge together various parts of the city while welcoming an estimated 10,000 visitors to the area. The walls that will be painted extend from Pleasant Street through the Elm Park area and out to the city’s Canal District.

“Arts have historically brought people together and we are excited to continue that tradition here in Worcester with the 32 artists involved,” said Jessica Walsh, Co-Director of POW! WOW! Worcester. “Artists from Worcester, various states in the US and from 9 countries around the world will join the event to continue the efforts of a renewed focus on our schools and the communities around them, “she continued.

Co-Director of POW! WOW! Worcester, Che Anderson said, “This year we wanted to bring art directly to the students of Worcester to excite and inspire them. POW! WOW! Worcester will not only see these artists create works of art to be enjoyed by students moving forward, but during the week of POW! WOW! Worcester we have numerous events to help instill the importance of art to these students.”

POW! WOW! Worcester is excited to unveil that the largest wall to be painted this summer is at the highly anticipated Fidelity Bank Worcester Ice Center. It will measure 240 feet across and 33 feet high and will be tackled by a team of talented artists led by Five 8 and Earth Crusher of Montreal, Canada. POW! WOW! Worcester directors Che Anderson and Jessica Walsh saw this partnership as an opportunity to join forces with one of the newest and most dominant organizations in the city.
