ArtUp Lowell | Street Art Tour 2021

Artup Lowell Murals


Celebrating art, culture, history and diversity in Lowell, MA with epic murals from local and visiting artists.

In September 2021, ArtUp Lowell and Beyond Walls produced the first large-scale murals in Lowell through a coalition of local nonprofits, business leaders and city officials, featuring the artwork of internationally renowned Latinx muralists, Angurria and David Zayas. Local artists were hired to assist these murals and advance their craft, while hundreds of Lowell’s youth participated in dialogues with the artists. Collectively, we amplified Lowell’s reputation as a center for vibrant, multicultural art that celebrates our communities. 

    About our Coalition: 

    ArtUp Lowell is a community-wide initiative to bring together youth, educators, artists and community organizations to create temporary and permanent neighborhood art. Our vision is to strengthen the communal spaces of our city by producing dynamic, visually appealing and culturally relevant art in the public realm to tell the stories of Lowell’s culture, history and diversity. 

    ArtUp Lowell has united partners to shape Lowell’s street art festival this summer. Our coalition of supporters includes… members of The Office of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, the Lowell Historic Board, Lowell Public Schools, Coalition for a Better Acre, Eliot Church, Middlesex Community College, UMass Lowell, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell, the Lowell Community Health Center, Greater Lowell Chamber of Commerce, members of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, and many more local youth and creative organizations. ArtUp Lowell is made possible by Project LEARN, Community Teamwork, Inc., Beyond Walls and BRM Production Management.
