FALL RIVER PUBLIC ART
At FRACC, we believe in the transformative power of public art. It not only enhances our city's landscape but also fuels economic vitality by attracting visitors and supporting local businesses. Beyond that, public art embodies our community's heritage and values, fostering a sense of belonging and pride among residents. We also recognize the invaluable contributions of artists, whose creativity enriches our public spaces.
In Fall River, we're fortunate to boast a diverse array of cultural, historical, and organizational treasures, alongside numerous attractions for visitors. As we continue to map and highlight these assets, we recognize that this is an ongoing effort. We value your input and invite you to connect with us via email, at email@example.com, if there are any aspects we may have missed. Explore art and culture organizations and services in Fall River.

Fall River Stays Active, 2023
By Abigail Collins/@abigailcollinsphoto
“I wanted something vibrant, motivating, and unique that captured the essence of the court and appealed to everyone. My goal was to create a mural that was inclusive and showed that fitness is something that can be accomplished by anyone, regardless of ability level. I hope that this Fitness Court® is something that the community can use to come together and encourage people to achieve healthy lifestyles while living in the city.”
Dad's Home, 2023
A captivating project in Fall River has caught the attention of many.
The Pearl Street parking garage's exterior is now adorned with a mural, a tribute to the residents of Fall River and their strong commitment to family.
Teaming up with Claudio Picasso, the New York-based artist BKFoxx paid homage to her father and other significant individuals in her life. Through her artwork, she beautifully conveys a message centered on love and family – two cherished values that hold a special place in the heart of Fall River.
