A few years ago I stumbled onto the fact that there were amazing murals going up on the walls in several towns near me. I'm in awe of the people who have the vision to create these very large pieces of art. As with all art, I like some of the murals and find others not very interesting - but no matter my attraction to the piece I still respect the creativity of the artists.
One of my favorite mural "places" is the Punto Urban Art Museum in Salem, MA, a creation of the North Shore Community Development Coalition. The last time I wandered there was in August. I have a need to visit again but I will wait until after Halloween. Since I'm not fond of crowds, Salem with its rich history of witchcraft is not a place to visit in the month of October!
I'd like to share a few of my favorite murals from the walls of Salem’s Point Neighborhood.
You can find a list of the murals along with photos (not mine but a good reference!) at http://puntourbanartmuseum.org/open-air-museum/art/.
This first mural is untitled, created by Chor Boogie.
