Free Community Events in July Celebrate Creation of 3 New Murals in Fall River

Get ready for a colorful and fun-filled July in Fall River!

The Fall River Arts & Culture Coalition (FRACC) and Viva Fall River invite the community to participate in 4 free events celebrating Viva Murals. This effort will see the completion of 3 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 – 31, which include Doran Elementary School on Columbia Street and the former Herald News building (now Potter’s Printing) at 207 Pocasset St.

The 4 free 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.

Details are as follows for the free community engagement events; information will also be posted on Viva Fall River’s Facebook page and FRACC’s Instagram page.
