More Murals Added to Philipsburg St Maarten Cityscape

PHILIPSBURG–Be The Change Foundation (BTC), with the help of local artists, sponsors and volunteers, has added eight new murals to the Philipsburg area. The results were recently officially “unveiled” during an opening tour and breakfast ceremony to celebrate the project’s participating artists and main sponsors. The project, called @colormesxm, aims to add colour and art to St. Maarten through murals, promote local artists, and encourage residents and visitors to explore less-visited areas and share the island’s beauty through photographs on social-media platforms.


Nine artists helped complete the eight new photo-friendly murals in Philipsburg: Claudio Arnell, Tes and Annabelle Verheij, Nascha Kagie, Lucia Trifan, Jessica Murtha, Adam G, Magueda Jackson and Jimmy “Mash” Sabas. Over 200 volunteers engaged in the project, helping to prepare, clean, scrape or paint the walls.
