You are beautiful

WOONSOCKET – A new mural in the center of Woonsocket will give a simple reminder to residents as they pass through the heart of the city: You are beautiful.

The permanent mural, which now sits on the Thundermist Falls Dam fence facing Market Square, is a part of a series of nationwide installations, one in each state, by a Chicago-based art group aiming to spread a positive message with three simple words.

Not meaning to be a fuddy duddy here, and I am all for that warm and fuzzy feeling, spreading the love and all, but the money I feel can go to feed the hungry, buy meds for the elderly or disabled….just my 2 cents. You can call me conservative, old fashioned, but I just feel money could be applied when a shortfall in a much wiser manner.


Hi Ida,

This artwork was supplied at no cost to the city by the You Are Beautiful Campaign- the first location in each state is provided the artwork free-of-charge.


Great idea. Public art.shows how vibrant a community can be.

Welcome to the discussion.
