Our favorite street art from Lynn’s Beyond Walls Mural Festival

Artists from Argentina, France, the Dominican Republic, Cambodia, the Netherlands and several other countries descended on Lynn this August to unleash their art on empty walls for the second annual Beyond Walls Mural Festival. This year, the festival transformed 28 walls, an increase from last year’s 15 murals.

“Last year, the city got behind us in a big way. It’s been great to see the artists and community come together to create something incredible again,” said Al Wilson, the founder and executive director of Beyond Walls.
