WALLS ON WESTERN
AN OPEN MURAL CALL

PROJECT BACKGROUND

Walls on Western, a program of Zone 3, is a new mural program intended to highlight local artists, both in Allston Brighton and throughout the Boston area. Throughout the next year, Zone 3 will announce several locations for murals along Western Ave. Boston artists with a connection to Allston are encouraged to apply.

We are currently seeking proposals for the second mural in the series. Wall #2 is approximately 20ft wide x 11ft tall, adjacent to an outdoor space that will soon be open and activated for public enjoyment along Western Ave in Allston.

Zone 3 is a Harvard-sparked initiative to further activate and energize Western Ave with creative programs, events, and retail. The hub of Zone 3 activity is currently the cluster of buildings at 267 Western Ave in Allston. Formerly a dry cleaning facility and an auto body garage, these buildings have recently been transformed through Harvard-led efforts. Walls on Western joins a roster of engaging programs and public art initiatives that have been implemented along the Western Ave corridor since 2015.
