Mayor's Mural Crew

Enhancing the style and visual landscape of Boston neighborhoods since 1991.

The Mayor's Mural Crew is a Parks and Recreation program. The program started in 1991 as a summer initiative to cover graffiti with murals painted and designed by high school students. Over the course of the program, we've engaged with hundreds of young people.

Our current mission is to create neighborhood landmarks within Boston's parks and playgrounds. We'll also continue to offer creative job training opportunities beyond murals, with projects that include:

  • installations
  • public and green space design
  • temporary street art
  • pop-up exhibits and art, and
  • community events.
