WALL\THERAPY [wawl.ther-uh-pee]-noun- a public community-level intervention using mural art as a vehicle to address our collective need for inspiration.

WALL\THERAPY Campaign [wawl.ther-uh-pee kam-ˈpān ]-noun- A heartfelt request from the WALL\THERAPY team to help raise funds to create an even bigger and better event for 2013.  Your donations will go toward the support of local and international artists to produce visually compelling murals in the Rochester cityscape, which in turn improves and strengthens our thriving community. 

 

It is often said that the key to a healthy, rewarding life is to continually strive to improve upon yourself and the world around you. Just as with any therapy, no matter how beneficial a first treatment may have been, the benefits from continued treatment can be measured exponentially. In 2012 WALL\THERAPY was born, during the week long event, 11 street artists from across the globe created stunning mural art here in Rochester. The reaction from the community was immediate and overwhelmingly positive. That is why we are asking for your donations for a continuation of this endeavor, for WALL\THERAPY 2013.

It's time for our talented 'wall therapists' to make their journey back to Rochester and to offer their special brand of medicine to walls throughout our city.  Last year's budget was $40,000. What began in 2011 as "Visual Intervention" with four artists from Cape Town, South Africa and seven local artists has now become WALL\THERAPY, featuring 15 artists, and over 16 walls throughout the Rochester area! The funds we receive here will go directly to bringing together artists, both local and global, to offer their treatments to the generously donated walls and surfaces of Rochester.  Help us continue to give back to our community; to help create, to inspire and to revitalize the city that we love. 

We ask for your donation and assistance to helping us reach our goal of $30,000 for WALL\THERAPY 2013. Your donations and spreading the word of this campaign will help make this year's event that much greater than before, and in turn have a greater impact on our community. Please consider donating as generously as possible to a cause which serves to beautify our urban landscape. Let's continue to inspire each other by breathing new life and energy to this city!


Thank you,

Ian, Erich, and the WALL\THERAPY Crew
