Mural Project at Russell Field ($22,000)

Russell Field FieldHouse, Rindge Ave

A middle-school student in North Cambridge proposed installing a mural in his neighborhood that “shows the community of Cambridge.” The mural will be installed on the Russell Field Fieldhouse.

Details:

Unlike other parts of Cambridge, North Cambridge does not have many mural installations. The mural would be installed at Russell Field, which is an important community amenity that is used by students and Cambridge’s Recreation Department throughout the year. If selected, the Cambridge Arts Council will oversee the implementation of the mural project. The Cambridge Arts Council will conduct an artist selection process as well as a community feedback process which will involve residents and local community organizations. The funds will cover the artist fee, the artist selection process, site preparation, and conservation and maintenance. Throughout the process, from the design to the implementation, the project will provide opportunities for community engagement and participation.
