FALL RIVER — It’ll be a colorful and fun-filled July in Fall River.
The Fall River Arts and Culture Coalition and Viva Fall River invite the community to participate in free events celebrating Viva Murals. This effort will see the completion of three new murals in the city by the end of the month.
Through a partnership with mural and public art experts Beyond Walls, the murals will come to life, with the two locations being painted July 17 through 31, which include Doran Elementary School on Columbia Street and the former Herald News building (now Potter’s Printing) at 207 Pocasset St.
The events will connect the community to the murals as they become part of the Fall River landscape and provide opportunities for creative engagement with the mural artists and one another.
Festivities kicked off July 10 with a live community painting at the Fall River Farmers and Artisans Market with artist Devin Nived Mclaughlin and will continue with the following community engagement events:
Friday, July 22: View and Chew Food Truck Event at 200 Pocasset St, (Fall River chamber building), noon to 2 p.m.
View the murals being painted across the street and chew on some free food and dessert from delicious local food trucks (to be announced on social media.)
Sunday, July 24: Spray Paint Art at the Fall River Farmers and Artisans Market (25 Jeremiah Sullivan Drive), 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
A favorite at local events and fun for all ages. Join Little Lambs and leave with your own spray paint art creation.
