Over the course of five days, nearly 200 artists from around the world will filter into Pawcatuck and Westerly to participate in the towns' first Bricks & Murals Festival — a celebration that will bring dozens of new murals to walls throughout Pawcatuck and Westerly. Spectators are invited to come watch the painting unfold in real-time. The festival begins on Sept. 13 with a panel discussion at 6 p.m. at the United Theatre located at 5 Canal St., Westerly, and runs from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Sept. 14-16 at various locations in downtown Westerly.
