BSA Special Feature: Beyond Walls Tour 2022 – Fall River, MA and Holyoke, Colorado
A public mural campaign franchise of sorts, the Beyond Walls Tour. Nearly a cottage industry by now, mural festivals are streamlined into mural programs across towns and cities to draw interest in and perhaps spur a local financial boom while delivering cultural impact. Here today is a look at Holyoke, Colorado, and Fall River, Massachusetts as part of Beyond Walls. In the case of the 6-year campaign in Fall River, Beyond Walls appears as part of a revitalization effort that partners with public and private funds and brings in educational components and community engagement – all aligning with a goal to strengthen and build a ”Cultural Economy Plan”. Of course, none of this is possible without the artists.
Tost Films gives you a sense of the environment on the streets as artists this summer brought solid skills and vision to their work here.
