Paint the Streets
Saturday 16 September 2023 – Sunday 7 January 2024 | Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum
Celebrating the story of graffiti and street art in partnership with Worcester Paint Festival, Paint the Streets explores the work of pivotal artists from the US and UK such as Basquiat, Haring, Shepard Fairey (Obey), Banksy, Goldie and Inkie, alongside a selection of current street artists who have been part of Worcester Paint Festival.
Worcester Paint Festival took place on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September, the opening weekend of Paint the Streets, but you can still enjoy the murals and street art across the city.
