Building on the success from last year’s Murals on the Market, this September 15th-24th more than 50 local and international muralists will be painting live throughout Eastern Market over the course of ten days. It’s the city’s only international mural festival.
The Knight Foundation and Eastern Market Corporation are the presenting sponsors for the event this year.
The free public arts festival also will host dozens of events curated by participating artists including multiple art exhibitions, installations, live music, children’s workshops, community events, artists talks and more all throughout the Eastern Market District. All events will be free and open to the public.
There will also be a cultural tour with Slow Roll, art exhibitions, an Eastern Market block party, as well as nighttime activities coinciding the neighborhood's yearly Eastern Market After Dark on September 22nd.
