New England has no shortage of towns that could be mistaken for a Currier & Ives print come to life, or, at the very least, the set of Gilmore Girls. All around the Northeast at Christmas, you can find plenty of cozy, light-strung streets to stroll, spiked cocoa in hand, but the largest density of holiday-ready villages is in Massachusetts.
Giant New Murals in Downtown Houston Bring Attention to the Need to Create a More Pedestrian Friendly Bayou City
Carlo Alberto's completed mural, "Hope for a Greener Future" (Photo by @superkant and @cyvisuals_, courtesy Street Art for Mankind) Ten unique murals have been unveiled in Downtown Houston, geared around showing the need to increase walkability and improve the pedestrian experience in the nation’s fourth largest city. BIG ART. BIGGER CHANGE is an outdoor fine art exhibition that aims to promote sustainable development goals for Houston. The murals were created by 10 internationally-recognized street artists: Victor Ash, Sonny Sundancer, Lula Goce, Emily Ding, Case MaClaim, Carlos Alberto, Ana Marietta, Cristian Blanxer + Bimbo Adenugba and Belin. Three artists — Ding, Marietta and Adenugba — are based in Houston.
Storm drains from the streets of Fairbanks empty directly into the Chena River, a habitat for moose, beaver, fish and migratory birds. Unfortunately, many people mistakenly believed the drains connect directly to the sewage-treatment plant, and used them to dispose of harmful substances like used motor oil. To change that harmful behavior in an educational and creative way, Tanana Valley Watershed Association, a local environmental nonprofit, teamed-up with the Fairbanks city government and local businesses.
The group could be the longest continuously operating Black arts organization in the U.S.

Buenos Aires, Argentina is a sprawling city full of a wide range of street art. By far, the most common recurring theme is the face of Diego Maradona. Born into poverty in the city in 1960, Diego grew up to become what many consider to be the best soccer player in the world, if one of the most controversial (there were ample drug-related scandals throughout his life). Known for aggressive play, epic stamina (he often played entire matches), as many fouls as goals, and elegant mastery of all aspects of the game Maradona is often compared to Pele and vice versa. Diego Maradona died on November 25, 2020 which led to a flurry of new images of him around town. With the 2022 World Cup in full swing and to mark the 2-year anniversary of the legend’s death, here are our favorite examples of Diego Maradona street art in Buenos Aires. We’ve credited the artists whenever possible.

'It's an incredible history': Public art project hopes to build on legacy of Niagara Falls' North End
For Niagara Falls residents in the community encompassing the stretch of Main Street between the Public Library and the Underground Railroad Heritage Center, hope has long been in short supply. Abandoned buildings and empty storefronts have given the area the appearance of a dilapidated ghost town, despite the region’s geographic proximity to the tourist hotspot that is the Falls themselves.
