  • Meet the Artist: Victor “Marka27” Quiñonez

    Victor “Marka27” Quiñonez is an international street artist whose colorful works blend the worlds of street and pop culture with Mexican and indigenous influences. The artist has coined his signature style “Neo Indigenous.” Marka27 honed his skills and developed his trademark style long before “street art” was a term. Marka27 partners with major brands and downtown districts to create paintings, murals, drawings, mixed-media pieces, and more.  Read our latest blog to learn more about how Marka27 has contributed to Downtown Worcester’s art scene.

  • Take a Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Worcester BLM Mural and One of the Artists Behind It

    Within the past year, murals started to appear throughout the country, in a sign of solidarity for the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement. As a community committed to social justice and human rights, a group of over 500 volunteers helped to create a street mural along Worcester’s Major Taylor Boulevard. This all-inclusive street mural, completed by 18 local artists with the support of the City administration and other local organizations, is reflective of the great work that happens when a community comes together for a common cause.

  • Meet the Artist: Caleb Neelon

    Caleb Neelon’s Massachusetts roots have spread to the Worcester street art scene and helped blossom a new enclave of creativity in the community. In 2014, Caleb’s 4-story mural on Worcester’s Denholm building was the city’s first step in embracing public art, paving the way for the artists and works that would come after. Due, in part, to skilled muralists such as Neelon, Worcester’s walls have become a rich canvas, welcoming artists from around the world to experience Worcester. Read our latest blog to learn more.
