Power Inn District Participating in Wide Open Walls
The “Wide Open Walls” street art event is taking place from August 10 through 20, 2017. It will bring over 24 local muralists, emerging artists, university students and more than 12 international street art superstars to the Sacramento region. The inaugural event will build on the success of last years’ Sacramento Mural Festival, bringing more world-wide attention to Sacramento’s venerable history of mural painting – which has already produced over 400 murals throughout the region over the last 50 years.
This years’ festival will expand public murals to new areas – including the Power Inn District, Natomas, Del Paso, the River District, Broadway, Oak Park, and South Sacramento. It will include many opportunities for the public to engage with the artists – including an opening party, public mural tours, artist receptions and panels, an artists’ marketplace, 2nd Saturday celebrations, and on-site interactive events.
