Street Art Superhero Spidertag To Kick-Off POW!WOW! Worcester 2019

by | Jun 14, 2019 | Entertainment, Arts, Events

WORCESTER – The international mural art festival, POW!WOW! returns to Worcester for its fourth year, August 16-23.

With an emphasis on arts education, community engagement, and civic pride, this years festival is hosting a preview event with Spanish artist Spidertag, who will create an interactive experience mural using flexible cables and industrial components to make a battery operated, light-based work of art.

The installation will grace Allen Court in downtown Worcester, and will take nearly a week to complete. During that time guests to the area, as well as people who live and work there, will be able to watch the piece evolve through completion.

In addition, Spidertag will be hosting a youth workshop with students from ArtReach, Main Idea, and Preservation Worcester, to learn how to create small, illuminated sculptures that simulate some of the process behind the artist’s work. The event is being held on June 17 at 4 PM at the Worcester PopUp, 20 Franklin Street, Worcester, and is open to the public.

POW!WOW! Worcester is a 10-day festival that draws artists from around the world to the city to create street art. Large scale murals can be found on landmark buildings like the Palladium, to destination favorites like George’s Coney Island, to residential developments, public schools, and community centers. Worcester boasts the largest collection of murals in New England, and will release its full schedule of confirmed artists, murals, and installations for the 2019 festival in late July.
