Lynn non-profit Centerboard has successfully funded their Public Art project for the 3rd year in a row. The public art, featuring 7 local and national artists, will be unveiled on Saturday June 22nd at 2:30pm during the 2nd annual OpenDTL. The installation, known as Public Art 3.0, involves beautifying the neighborhood of Central Square as well as supporting independent and emerging artists.
“The public art on the bridge instantly perks up the neighborhood, the residents and businesses love it and we are looking forward to getting new photos installed,” remarks Centerboard’s Special Projects Coordinator Carla Scheri. This year’s artists are as follows. Photographers Josh Morrissette, Michael Karolemeas, Kerry McDermott, Adam Miller and Jason Taglieri are all North Shore residents. Sarah Kang is based in San Francisco. Kate Ahokas is based in Colorado. The theme for Public Art 3.0 is “Strength and Renewal.” The majority of the local artists will be on hand at the unveiling for photos and interviews.
