ART IS ACTIVISM. Dr. Ian Wilson, who began WALL\THERAPY and Synthesis Collaborative with its IMPACT initiative knows this. He also creates spaces to advocate through it. {Great read from (585) Mag here!} As explained by About WALL\THERAPY, Dr. Ian Wilson sought to give back what our city gave him:

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.

Remember 1975 Gallery? These murals were painted by therapists. AKA a combination of world-renown artists, graffiti artists, graphic designers, and typographers who are “[rehabilitating]” our city through their art. How many? A lot. Men. Women. Local. National. International. Incredibly talented. Beautifully therapeutic. Check out the 2012 \ 2013 artist rosters here!
