WALL\THERAPY 2012

WALL\THERAPY

WALL\THERAPY is a public community-level intervention using mural art as a vehicle to address our collective need for inspiration based in Rochester, NY.  2012 marked the first full-week event where 11 artists created 16 murals throughout the city.

WALL\THERAPY is born.
In 2012, Dr. Wilson's idea got a new name and grew to a week-long mural festival, bringing a group of 11 artists together from Rochester and around the world to begin painting Rochester's walls in earnest. These pockets of inspiration focused on Rochester's downtown and Public Market; later years would reach in ever-expansive circles outside of the city's downtown.
The Giant Storybook Project
Later in 2012, the German Duo HERAKUT traveled to Rochester to add a giant 5-story mural as part of their global project, The Giant Storybook Project. While not specifically a WALL\THERAPY mural, the team was the local facilitators for this mural.
