About the Street Art Festival:
In 2016, Community meetings led to Downtown Lynn businesses and residents sharing a desire to get more people walking around the city. To achieve more ‘walkability’ residents and business owners shared a focus should be made on addressing lighting concerns and installing art throughout the downtown. Beyond Walls formed out of these meetings as a completely volunteer-driven committee, focused on addressing lighting needs under MBTA owned bridges and infusing art throughout the downtown. We now operate as a year round non profit focused on activating spaces to strengthen community.
Over the last three years, Beyond Walls has facilitated an annual, free-to-the-public two week Festival partnering with a mix of local, regional, and internationally-renowned artists.
Through our unique artist selection process, we ensure the artworks across Lynn reflect the rich culture and incredibly diverse population in the city. The Festival lives on due to key partnerships with local stakeholders, volunteers, and our passionate funders.
