Sprocket Mural Works’ Inaugural Harrisburg Mural Festival is two weeks of focused city beautification through the creation of 10 murals in the fall of 2017. In addition to the painting of murals the festival will start with a kickoff event, feature artists talks and meet and greets, and end with one kickass party.
ONE MURAL IS GOOD - 10 MURALS ARE GREAT.
- Celebrate with us on Sep 10th from 12:00pm - 5:00pm on State Street (Between 2nd & 3rd Sts) as we throw a killer block party!
- Activities will include a walkable mural tour, live music food trucks, a collaborative mural project, and artist vendors via the HBG Flea.
We have seen the impact that one mural can make on a community and we know that more murals will have a greater impact.
Up until this point, Sprocket has coordinated projects on an individual basis. A mural festival allows Sprocket to maximize our efforts and achieve more with less. We can maximize our donation and sponsorship dollars by purchasing supplies and renting equipment in bulk. We can achieve a level of exposure with a mural festival that we could never reach with a single mural – leading to greater visibility for Sprocket, our artists and our sponsors. And with the mix of artists, participants and volunteers that will be engaged in the mural festival, we will be encouraging the creative spirit of our community on our grandest scale yet.
