One of the main features of this amazing new urban park is the Underground Mural Project, a powerful and impactful public art installation that brought together many of today's most popular and influential street artists to transform over 150,000 SF of mural walls. The inaugural participating artists include: Cey Adams (New York City), Don Rimx (Puerto Rico), Imagine876 (Boston) Hoxxoh (Miami), Marka27 (Boston), Percy Fortini Wright (Boston), Problak (Boston), Upendo (Los Angeles), Vyal One (Los Angeles), Ewok (Boston), Thy Doan (Boston) & Andrew Balboa (Boston). The 2017 Underground Mural Project was curated by Street Theory and powered by Reebok in partnership with National Development.
“At Reebok, we’re on a mission to inspire people to get active, honor the bodies they’ve been given, and live each day to the fullest,” said Reebok Brand President Matt O’Toole. “Underground at Ink Block presents the perfect opportunity to showcase art, music, movement, and community. We’re grateful to be a part of this project and I’m excited to see all of the versatile ways the space will be utilized.”
The 9 transformed walls were unveiled at the first annual 'Underground GetDown' block party on Saturday, September 9, 2017 along with a full day of programming and public events. The 2017 Underground Mural Project has been made possible thanks to the program’s sponsors and in-kind partners including National Development, Ink Block, Reebok, Capital One Café, Sierra Nevada, Loco South Boston, W Hotel Boston, The Container Yard, Dirty Water Media, Delta Airlines, Baroo, Street Theory, KP Strategies & House of Roulx.
