Making Weekend Plans in Rochester? Two Words: Wall \ Therapy
What can an aging industrial city do to restore some hometown pride? One part urban exploration, one part scavenger hunt, and one part art installation–Wall \Therapy
is Rochester NY’s answer to breaking the rust belt funk. Old warehouses and common brick walls are the canvas of choice for Wall \Therapy artists. Now in it’s second year, Wall \Therapy is an ambitious project designed to beautify the city with large scale murals. Not only is the project having a visual impact on the city–it’s helping to spur an artistic tourist industry. Combined with artwalk
, Rochester is bringing suburbanites back into the fold. It’s even attracting people from neighboring cities Buffalo and Syracuse. The slideshow above features pictures I took of the various Wall \Therapy murals from around the city. I spent the better part of last Sunday seeking out the installations and believe it or not I still have a few to discover! Looking for something to do in Rochester this weekend? Look no further than Wall \Therapy.
