The Walls Project started as a small grass-roots movement in 2012 and has grown into an organization whose mission is to stimulate the creative arts economy across the globe by delivering public art works that inspire urban and rural beautification, dialogue and unity.

After completing mural No. 12 on the weekend of April 19-20 in partnership with Star Hill Church and Sherwin Williams, the Walls will begin work on mural No. 13, featuring New Orleans-based artist Joseph Konert near 14th and Government streets.

“By creating these murals and building installations in Baton Rouge, we have set the foundation for the awareness and subsequent economic impact public art can bring to area businesses,” says Orhan McMillan, founding member and communications director. “We are very excited for future projects in Baton Rouge, and all our statewide collaborations in the coming months

On the heels of a statewide rebranding campaign orchestrated by Dezins Interactive, the Walls announces its next juried call-to-artists for its upcoming projects. The search is on for world-class muralists, sculptors, LED lighting and 4D video projectionists to add to its pool of more than 50 artists.

Artists will be selected on a range of criteria, including conceptual and aesthetic quality, feasibility of project completion and a minimum of five documented public art projects.
