Westville Village, New Haven, is getting the beauty treatment thanks to a growing number of public art installations, reports the New Haven Independent.  Constantly evolving and new exhibits like a yarn-bombed bike rack and shadow painting, curated graffiti murals, and mixed-medium exhibits have been increasing over the last few years, with many more currently in the planning stages.

Westville Village is home to a large number of artists who have been inspired to make their work public, creating a unique and eclectic community.  Many of the exhibits were originally created as part of the community Artwalk event, and became permanent installations featuring curated, constantly changing works of art to the delight of residents and visitors.
