See Graffitied House, Street Art at Open House

On Saturday there will be an open house to see a Green Street house that had its outside graffitied by Boston artists with full support of the building’s owner.

While awaiting renovations, 197 Green St. had its outside redecorated by local artists.

The vacant residential building is currently awaiting renovations so artists led by Michael Balding and Loey Lyfer let their creative talents loose at 197 Green St.

“This is our neighborhood as well. And we are proud to be able to change the face of it with art,” said Lyfer.

The building was redecorated as part of City Realty’s City Pop program, which assists and encourages artists in the community to help bring art to public spaces.

The open house will be on Saturday, Nov. 17 from noon to 5 pm. The artists’ work will be on full display, and there’s still more painting to be done — so aspiring artists are welcome to come and paint.

The house's outside was redecorated as part of City Realty's City Pop program.

    I thought this building was going to be torn down as part of a large apartment building?
