Art is the collection of human expression and experiences.
Murage embraces art in all its forms, and we rep all types of street art, including community art projects, sculptures, and especially murals.
Murals are powerful because they contribute to a community’s identity. They are art for the people, giving those who gaze upon a painted wall creative license to enjoy and interpret it through their own life experiences.
Murage was born to help promote and perpetuate public art because it contributes to a higher quality of life.
Creative Director Bryan Speece founded Murage because he’s passionate about art and believes it beautifies our communities while possessing the power to spark our imagination, ignite creativity, and stimulate conversation.
Speece has seen the benefits of street art firsthand in his hometown of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Less than a decade ago, Harrisburg was making national news as it considered bankruptcy. However, the city avoided that fate and something amazing happened.
Everyday citizens started stepping up to breath new life into the state capitol. Restaurants, coffee shops, cultural attractions, and microbreweries started to appear in its urban center. The lifeblood of this rebirth was a growing art scene that included investment in studio spaces, galleries and, of course, street art.
In 2017 Harrisburg had its first mural festival organized by Sprocket Mural Works.
Now Harrisburg is seeing great economic and population growth. In fact, this past January it was named a top growth city.
We want other struggling areas to experience the same renaissance as Harrisburg and we know just how to help.
As artists capture the human condition via the public art they create, Murage will support the medium by giving back a dime of every dollar earned to organizations and artists who make street art in our communities.
Join us on our journey and see why life’s a murage.
