Nine of the crosswalks in downtown Amesbury were painted by some very talented local artists! Be sure to take a stroll around town and check out each one.

Chalk the Walk - October 2020

During Chalk the Walk, three professional artists created Fall and Halloween-themed chalk murals in the Upper Millyard Amphitheater. Members of the community had the opportunity to watch the artists create these murals and also create chalk drawings of their own. 

This event recurs every October.

It's Electric! - Summer 2020

In summer 2020, the Amesbury Cultural Council launched a public art initiative to paint the necessary, but not very attractive, electrical boxes around town. The plain-Jane dropbox outside City Hall? That could use a creative coat of paint as well.  We selected 10 artists to paint the electrical boxes around the theme "The Art of Community."
