Designed to evoke emotion and to spark conversation. It embraces the community and marries both sides of the bridge gracefully by creating a new urban texture. The mural layout and color palette masterfully softens and generates a new energy with ever step.

It's about bringing people together and connecting them...

This public art installation for the bridge over the MA-90 has the same aim. Inhabitants from the north side will meet inhabitants from the south side to create the largest community mural in Boston.

 

The project is designed to evoke emotion and to spark conversation. It embraces the community and marries both sides of the bridge gracefully by creating a new urban texture. The mural layout and color palette masterfully softens and generates a new energy with ever step.

The creative process viewed the artist in the most traditional sense of the word. The artist goes through an experience and pulls inspiration out of their observations.
