OG Slick POW WOW Mural

261 Main St, Worcester, MA 01608

“We repainted this wall in 2018 as an opportunity for the project to show the ever-changing or evolving nature of this art form. It made sense to paint our biggest wall to convey the idea that these aren't here forever. Experience them, take photos of them, enjoy them while you can. Slick had done a smiley mural in Kobe, Japan for POW! WOW! Japan. I started needling him and saying, 'How dare you? Worcester is the birthplace of the smiley face.' He said, 'You know what? You give me the biggest wall you can and I'm going to do the biggest smiley face.' The wall is actually cosponsored by the Worcester Historical Museum.”
