As many of you know, this morning an intense flash flood hit Lynn and flooded our streets, sidewalks, and businesses. Many of our neighbors and friends were directly affected and will have to invest funds that small businesses do not always have available on necessary repairs.
The team at Beyond Walls cares deeply about the community and wanted to figure out a way to help our neighbors.
For 24 hours all donations given to Beyond Walls will be distributed to those businesses on Munroe street that were directly affected by the flash flooding. We will equally distribute 100% of the money as soon as possible. We understand that any loss of business is detrimental to these small businesses.

On our end of things the flood brought our artists off of their walls and flooded our warehouse of paint and supplies. However, the storm has cleared, the paint will dry and the artists are already back to work. Beyond Walls will be not accepting any of these funds over the next 24 hours for our benefit.
This fundraising drive will run until 4PM on August 13th, 2018 so don’t wait! Help our neighbors today!

Wasp Elder is a socially engaged artist who paints pictures populated by enigmatic figures and unstressed backgrounds, enticing a sentiment of an obscure journey. His paintings present an evocative combination of solitary figures, collaged scenes, close-ups, obscured features, and potential catastrophe. Through this working process he is able to present often marginalized figures through a dignified representation. Highlighting their humanity outside of the conflict that is seen to define them.

French artist Eltono (1975) worked in Madrid for the last decade, then in Beijing for four years and now lives in southern France. Flâneur, stubborn walker and chronic observer, for years Eltono has used public space as support, studio and inspiration source. His sensitivity to what is happening around him and his knowledge of the nature of the street – its whims and its unpredictability – are his main tools when generating works
