Boston is painting a picture for a more vibrant art scene. The Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture committed its largest contract award for public art so far, and announced that Street Theory, Inc. will return as the City of Boston’s mural consultant.
Street Theory will be tasked with adding 10-15 murals or other public art projects across Boston through December 2025. The three-year, $3.5+ million contract will use American Rescue Plan Act funding for artist payments and project costs. The projects will also support summer activations (think: last year’s Boston Blooms Block Party).
The creative agency was founded in 2016 + is owned and operated by founder Liza Quiñonez.
Two projects are currently in the works in Roxbury: three basketball court murals at Malcolm X Park + a mural at the BCYF Shelburne.
