Over the course of the 2017 project, 50 artists from across the world visited Worcester to install 42 murals, 11 installations peppered throughout the city with 31 of those murals on Worcester Public Schools. Artists developed deeper connections with the Worcester community and promoted the creation and appreciation of art throughout the city. Worcester has never looked more beautiful.
