We have implemented more than forty public art projects in both rural and urban settings. Our goal is to strategically leverage the power of public art to change the character and purpose of public spaces.

“Murals activate public spaces, reinventing their use and purpose,” said Hall, also the founder of Art This Way and owner of AH Public Spaces Consulting. “By creating a cultural destination, we engage an audience while they move from business to business within a community.”

“.. investment in culture can create these economic booms,” she says. “We always talk about 'staying power' and the 'young people coming here', or 'what makes the young people stay'. And I think that we have neglected how important it is to have a really unique culture, and part of that culture is artistic expression.”
