Three New Public Art Murals

Committee: Community Resources

Cost: $120,000

Location: The Port, Mid Cambridge, North Cambridge.

Short Description: Revitalize Cambridge with 3 new neighborhood murals. This public art project would reflect our cultural diversity, strength, and positive energy. Local artists working with high school students would produce the murals.

Long Description: Art inspires people and promotes inclusion. This project will create three new neighborhood murals to celebrate and expand the cultural diversity, community strength, and positive energy of our city, and demonstrate our love of the arts. Artwork creates a sense of unity for our city by transforming space and celebrating the human experience. Art can build inclusion by bringing people together as neighbors and communities in inviting public spaces.

These three new murals will be located across Cambridge neighborhoods, including potential locations identified by the city:

  • The Port: 105 Windsor Street or a similar location
  • Mid Cambridge (and Central Square): Former Citizens Bank building or similar location
  • North Cambridge: Existing Pemberton Street Wall, which is a block long, between Yerxa Road and Haskell Street

A two-storey brick building located at 105 Windsor St. A fading mural.  It is hard to make out the subject of the mural, although it appears to say "Cambridge" in big letters on one side.


Project Updates:

The Pemberton Street Mural is complete! See below for photographs of the Cambridge volunteers that contributed to the art mural.
