Practitioners and researchers of the field are welcome to submit proposals for this conference. Individuals do not need to be Mural Routes members to submit.
Murals: The Message of the Medium
As murals and street art gain popularity and support, we aim to look to the inherent message behind the medium that brings the power of art into the public realm. We plan to dig deeper into the history of murals as a medium for social and environmental good, and explore current projects harnessing that power.”
