The City of Haverhill and Creative Haverhill are partnering with Lynn-based Beyond Walls to develop and install another round of epic community-driven murals throughout the city by professional and internationally renowned muralists.

The goal this year is to install two to three murals in the last two weeks of September, culminating in a mural tour and celebration to close out the Haverhill Art Walk season on Saturday, Sept. 28. Toward this end, Beyond Walls is asking the public to complete a brief survey to share ideas and input. The language of the survey at beyondwalls.org/haverhill-survey is selectable by users.

“The more responses we get from community members of different backgrounds, neighborhoods, sectors and walks of life the better we’ll be able to curate the murals to reflect the community,” the group said in a release.

Last year was the first year of the three-year partnership with Beyond Walls. Five murals were created including “We Art Golden” mural along Broadway and Thorndike Street; “In Their Essence” on the Boys & Girls Club building; “The Show Maker” on the Haverhill Housing Authority building, 25 Washington Square; “Back Home” on the MeVa Parking Garage, 53 Granite St.; and the floral mural on the Passion Flowers Shop building, 154 Washington St.
