I received an email from the North Shore Community Development Coalition in late October that included an announcement about new murals in Salem.
Over the past three weeks, the twenty (20) Massachusetts-based artists selected for this year's Call for Art, inspired by Nina Simone’s “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel to Be Free" installed their murals on the National Grid Wall on Peabody Street in Salem.
Graffiti artist JEKS from Greensboro, North Carolina installed two new large-scale murals in the Point neighborhood.
New murals meant I needed to plan to visit Salem - but I needed to wait until after Halloween. Salem (MA) is a destination for those interested in witches. It tends to be crazy during the month of October. I chose to wait to visit until after Halloween.
Most of the murals were on the wall surrounding National Grid in The Point neighborhood.
