Beyond Walls: Placemaking in Lynn, MA

Join us on May 21 at 6pm as we shine a spotlight on Beyond Walls, a placemaking project turned nonprofit. Originally, a volunteer initiative headed by Lynn residents, business owners and public art enthusiasts, Beyond Walls, was set into action through a variety of donations, sponsorships and grants. The first projects spearheaded by Beyond Walls include 600 feet of interactive LED underpass lighting, building-sized murals created by international artists throughout the downtown, vintage neon art, and a sculpture paying homage to Lynn's industrial past. Join Pedro Soto and Amanda Hill from Beyond Walls in conversation with Joe Mulligan from Mass Development to hear how Beyond Walls banded together a group of volunteers to turn underused spaces into community assets.
