One of our corners of Main Street will be getting an artistic makeover, according to an article on GoLocalWorcester.com. Four artists will paint five murals on the side of the WCUW 91.3 FM community radio station building this spring as part of the Worcester Cultural Coalition's Public Art Working Group and the City of Worcester's Cultural Development division's "MakeArtEverywhere" campaign.
Here, an excerpt from the article:
"The Worcester Public Art Working Group has announced the artists who have been selected to create five murals on the southwest side of the WCUW building at 910 Main St. The artists were selected by a panel of Worcester area college art professors to create murals.
" 'WCUW is honored to be a collaborator in the 2016 Worcester Make Art Everywhere Mural Project. Main South is one of Worcester’s more diverse neighborhoods; we look forward to doing our part by giving public art a place to live. The positive visual impact this project will bring to the Main South area is sure to act as a catalyst for other projects and developments up and down Main Street,' said Troy Tyree, WCUW Executive Director."
