The Walls Project celebrating 10 years with a one-of-a-kind event

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRProud) – The Walls Project has been making a difference in the Capital City for 10 years and celebrating in a big way!

When launched in 2012, The Walls Project sought to challenge the blank walls of Downtown Baton Rouge. A Kickstarter that year raised $37,140 towards beautifying the city. Many murals later, The Walls Project began to notice public art draws a crowd, and many wanted to pitch in towards helping.

The murals program soon saw additional programs and initiatives being added to the roster that introduced MLK Fest in 2014, Futures Fund in 2015, Baton Roots in 2019, and OneRouge in 2020.

Since 2012, the non-profit organization has been able to generate $3.5 million in creative income, 3,500 individuals trained in tech, 20,000 pounds of produce grown, and more than 100 community meetings have been held.

The celebration will be held at Chelsea’s Live at 6 p.m. on Friday, August 5th. There will be an art auction, live music and performances, interactive installations, and hosted conversations around collaboration and community-building. Tickets can be bought online.
