SPOKE and its South Boston partners invite you to be part of New Art in Old Colony, an initiative to create public art for the Old Colony neighborhood as part of its next phase of redevelopment.
SPOKE commissioned Boston artists Allison Maria Rodriguez and Franklin Marval to lead a series of workshops with Old Colony residents at the Tierney Learning Center to explore how works of public art can best reflect their vision, ideas, concerns, and hopes for the neighborhood.
The two part workshops are July 29 followed by August 5th, Each session will take place from 6:00 pm- 7:30- Pm Participants will be asked to attend both sessions, one week apart.
The artists request each participant to bring an item to the first session that makes them think of home – this can be a photograph, a memento or physical object, an article of clothing, etc. If it is a digital image, you can send it in advance to email@example.com if you would like to. The artists will ask you to share the meaning of your item with the group.
We are grateful to co-host New Art in Old Colony with South Boston En Accion, Tierney Learning Center, and the Old Colony Task Force. This project is possible through the generous support of the BHA, Beacon Communities, and the National Endowment for the Arts
