Melrose, MA Public Art Project 10/2020

I am excited to have been chosen to be part of The City of Melrose Wayfinding and Creative Placemaking Initiative for 2020. The project will be hosting the creative work of 9 area artists. This initiative is funded entirely from a grant secured by Mayor Brodeur last year in his capacity as State Representative. It is facilitated by Follow Your Art Community Studios.

My project is to paint a utility box on the corner of Main Street and Lynn Fells Parkway in Melrose. The design was inspired by a Newbury Award book by Elizabeth George Speare who was born in Melrose, MA. The Witch of Blackbird Pond was my childhood favorite, and was the book that cemented my love of reading.
