Shutters asks visitors how much art do they allow in? Are your blinds closed to community projects or do you let it all in? Do you engage or view from a distance?

Various local artists created murals to encourage visitors to change their work by blocking out parts as you deem fit, create icons or messages with the shutter panels or block it out completely. Artists serve the community. Creativity can be blindly consumed without appreciating those behind the scenes.
