WALL\THERAPY is an art and community intervention project, using public murals as a means to transform the urban landscape, inspire, and build community.

For its ten year anniversary, WALL\THERAPY has invited six artists from the past to rejoin them, as well as welcoming six new artists to the WALL\THERAPY Family.

The Ten Year Anniversary Festival will begin on Saturday, July 23 and run through Sunday July 31, 2022, with opportunities for the public to view and engage with public art in Rochester. With seven days filled with incredible artists, we've pulled together a guide with the must-knows for experiencing Rochester's public art festival.
