- Wall Therapy "Exposed"Ian Wilson wanted to give back to Rochester, the city that has given him so much.
In 2012, the manifestation of that thank you became WALL\THERAPY, a community level intervention using mural art as a vehicle to address our collective need for inspiration. During this week-long festival, 11 street artists (“therapists”) from across the globe painted (“rehabilitated”) 16 walls, healing the city with new life and energy. The intervention beautified our urban landscape, ignited a community dialogue and inspired Rochesterians to view the Image City, a moniker originally attributed to Kodak, in a proud, new way.Graffiti artists include

"This is one of the pieces that really struck me. I was particularly drawn to the strong design and high level of photography incorporated into it."
