We were thrilled to be a part of a dynamic event in Lynn, Massachusetts, aptly called “INSIDE THE MURAL,” organized by Beyond Walls Lynn. This immersive evening was a testament to the power of art, culture, and community to enliven public spaces and foster connections among people from diverse backgrounds.
Highlights of the Evening
The evening kicked off with a lively reception featuring local brews from @bentwaterbrewing and fine wines from @lucillewineshop. The atmosphere was electric, punctuated by a riveting Bomba performance that had everyone on their feet.
What’s an event about murals without a tour of them? Visiting Beyond Walls muralists led attendees through a curated mini journey of the city’s most iconic murals. Each stop was a feast for the eyes and a deep dive into the messages and meanings behind each work of art.
Street Art Film Shorts
The event also included the screening of some compelling Street Art Film Shorts. Notable among them were:
“El Maestro de las Máscaras” by AnthonyEdwin, which delves into the transformative power of masks in art. View video here.
“One Blue Sky Project: Mozambique <> Lynn MA” by aptART, illustrating the universal language of art and its capacity to link disparate communities.
Building Bridges Through Creativity
Events like INSIDE THE MURAL go beyond mere entertainment; they catalyze community engagement and cultural understanding. We saw firsthand how art can be the common thread weaving together people from varied backgrounds, fostering a shared appreciation and inspiration.
A big thank you to all who attended and contributed to making this night a resounding success!
