About the Event

Event Sunday, October 20, 2019 - 12:00pm - 1:30pm

Join the Somerville Arts Council, Ward 5 City Councilor Mark Niedergang, artist Tova Speter, and contributing community members for a mural unveiling at Lexington Park on Sunday, October 20, from noon to 1:30 p.m. A new community mural, “This Is Lexington Park,” was designed and painted by neighborhood participants of all ages. It represents the interconnectedness between people from different backgrounds and generations. Inspired by our 2007 Lexington Park community mural, it also emphasizes the importance of remembering and honoring the past as we celebrate the present.
 
Over 50 participants, led by artist Tova Speter, contributed their individual and collective color to this collaborative work, sharing the beauty that is possible when we all work together.
 
The project was sponsored by the City of Somerville and the Somerville Arts Council.
