As a release or means of therapy, some of us listen to music, some go to the gym, and some of us paint on walls. What began in 2011 as a small project, has transpired into a week long event featuring over 16 artists, and representing 11 countries.

The idea behind Wall Therapy is “A community level intervention using mural art as a vehicle to address our collective need for inspiration.” What is referred to as “The Intervention”, beautified the urban landscape, ignited a community dialogue and inspired Rochesterians to view the Image City, in a proud, new way. This year Wall Therapy covered miles of ground! See the map below to get a better idea of how it went down across the city and make sure to scroll through images of the artwork!
