Redefine the walls that surround you

The Walls Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that began as a collaborative effort in November 2012 between a number of entrepreneurial real estate and social communities in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We intend to bridge the gap between the artistic and business communities in order to accomplish not only city beautification but also economic development in order to serve a greater social good.

Create

The Walls uses visual storytelling to create art which inspires, educates, and develops a community's pride and sense of place through murals, sculpture, and digital installations. To date, The Walls has engaged hundreds of professional artists and thousands of community volunteers to create over 90 public art installations, and contribute over $1,000,000 in economic growth to the Capital region's creative sector.
