The Parliament is a non-profit arts organization, on a mission to empower artists and transform York.
Our shows challenge artists to develop their craft & attract local buyers.
"Street Art" exhibit
Feb. 17-April 2
Join us for our new art exhibit - Street Art - featuring the murals behind Royal Square's beautiful works of art!
Sprocket Mural Works believe that art can change the face of a city. And after six murals popped up in York's Royal Square District over Memorial Day weekend 2017, we think it's safe to say it's changed the face of our arts-focused neighborhood.
See the work of some of the artists behind the RS murals on a slightly smaller scale - our walls.
We host renowned events to attract the masses.
