2nd annual Mural Fest brings talent from all over

News
Binghamton (WIVT) – The river walk along the Chenango River in downtown Binghamton will come alive this Sunday with a mass demonstration of public art.

The second annual Mural Fest will take place between the Court Street bridge and the Martin Luther King Promenade.

31 muralists, many professional street artists from as far away as Argentina, Australia and New Zealand, will show off their talents.

They’ll be painting moveable panels and hot air balloon cut-outs.

Organizer Kady Perry said the event also celebrates the accomplishments already of Binghamton’s Department of Public Art.

“Binghamton is more vibrant. People are more psychologically inclined to react positively. Even for the City of Binghamton, I think we inspired the current administration with their bike rack project,” said Perry.

We’ll have more on those in the future.

The free, family-friendly event runs from noon until 6 p.m. Sunday, rain or shine.

There will also be two stages of live music, interactive painting opportunities and a children’s sculpture garden for kids to decorate.
