Mural at the Walnut Street Center
This is what I did last night. It was pretty cool. The project was organized by a small local non-profit Art Builds Community. Earlier this summer I applied to work with another project of theirs and when I wasn't selected I asked that I be kept in the loop to volunteer if necessary. Well, Monday night I got the call or the email rather and agreed to show up at a home for adults in Somerville. We were just putting on the finishing touches and pulling together what the members of the home had produced themselves. It was a good chance to get out and to meet people. Surprisingly I found myself amongst a group of art therapists and I made a new friend. Read about the concurrent Chelsea Mass project here.
