INSIDE FEATURE | BY REBECCA RAFFERTY | PAGE 10 | FILE PHOTOS Worlds collide on walls: Wall/Therapy Symbolically, walls stand to divide space, to enclose people and property. But for Dr. Ian Wilson and the network of medical professionals, artists, and volunteers he has organized around Rochester’s annual Wall\ Therapy street-art festival, walls stand for something more. Through that initiative, walls have the capability to unite communities on local and global scales. Wall\Therapy efforts officially started in 2011. Since then more than a dozen local murals have been created by more than 20 international and local artists. These works grace the largely empty walls of Rochester; you can currently see murals from the project in the areas surrounding the Rochester Public Market and the St. Paul Quarter. Leading up to this year’s Wall\Therapy event, which will see artists painting July 19-28, City caught up with Wilson, who reflected on the endeavor so far, previewed the festival line-up of artists, and discussed how they are preparing to shift the medicalphilanthropy side of the endeavor to the forefront.
