The Vision of 352walls/The Gainesville Urban Art Project is to leverage the 352 area’s creative potential and distinctiveness with more public art and design.
352walls/Gainesville Urban Art Initiative is a curated, public art project that has created over 30 curated murals in Gainesville, Florida since 2015.
352walls’ mission is to position Gainesville as a vibrant cultural destination by stimulating urban renewal, fostering cultural tourism and economic development, beautifying the urban landscape, boosting community pride, and last but not least, serving as a catalyst for urban art studies at Santa Fe College and the University of Florida School of Art + Art History.
We offer lectures, master classes and workshops by renowned urban muralists, street artists and experts in the field. Last summer, in partnership with the prestigious Thomas Center Galleries and the National Institute of Urban Art, we presented UNCONTAINABLE, an acclaimed exhibition of the studio work of artists such as Etam Cru, How & Nosm, Swoon and others. In addition, 352walls offers complimentary cell phone street tours and VIP walking tours on demand.
