In April 2020, Austin Street Partners completed construction of a new public plaza at 28 Austin Street in Newtonville, MA.  The Plaza—designed with decorative paving, lush plantings, and sculptural seating—represents the capstone in the transformation of a neglected municipal parking lot into new housing and community gathering space.

Austin Street Partners, working with the Newtonville Area Council, Newton Community Pride, and the New Art Center, is proud to announce the final step in the beautification of Austin Street:  The 28 Austin Mural Competition.  Austin Street Partners invites experienced mural and street artists to submit designs by August 1, 2020 for a mural to be painted on the brick wall facing the plaza.  The winning artist must complete the painting of the selected design by October 15, 2020. The winner will receive a cash prize of $5,000.
