Welcome to Public Art 3.0! The photo you see above is from last year's successful Public Art 2.0 campaign. This project is designed to beautify the Central Square neighborhood of downtown Lynn, Massachusetts. We're raising funds to help off-set production costs of enlarging our photos onto 6x8 feet pieces of weatherized vinyl, as well as providing a stipend for the participating artists. This is our third time hanging large photos in Central Square so we've really got the process down. Through the hard work of many people, we plan on installing 3.0 in the Spring, a time of hope and renewal after a long New England winter!
Perhaps more importantly is the WHY of this project. Ascribing to the Broken Windows theory, we truly believe that if you make a place beautiful, people will love and respect it. And why not give all those who pass through Central Square something they can be proud of. Stunning artwork will hang on display for all who pass by to see.
We are excited to continue on in our Public Art series and we are very grateful to the MBTA for allowing their bridge to become our canvas. Thank you so much for donating to our campaign! Special thanks to our sponsors The Daily Item and David Solimine Jr.
Risks and challenges
We have considered the challenges of Public Art 3.0 carefully and have put a plan in place to help us overcome them if they arrive. The first thing we have done is given ourselves plenty of lead time to work through any production delays. We have also set up a weather contingency in case the weather does not cooperate on the day of the unveiling. We are confident our team will install 3.0 under any condition. We have planned a corresponding art opening celebrating the launch in our visionspace gallery, just walking distance of the bridge! This will truly be a city wide event. Help us breathe new life into public spaces and support community through local art!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
