 “When a wall becomes a bridge.”

“These murals have begun to transform the City not only on a visual level, but also on a spiritual one. The walkability of downtown Springfield has been greatly enhanced largely due to the creative spirit that is alive on these walls. A vacant building becomes a destination when a wall becomes a bridge. City Mosaic & NAI Plotkin are proud to be part of Springfields’s Transformation and Renaissance of a once blighted part of our City.”
