Groundwork Somerville debuts a new mural at South Street Farm to help celebrate ArtBeat! It will be painted all during ArtBeat week. The Groundwork team decided to interpret this year’s ArtBeat theme of “Chance” as it relates to the environment. So they came up with: “A chance to rest” theme, which explores what happens when the earth is given an opportunity to breathe and rest. The design process involved asking the public questions like: What does urban green space mean to you? How can we take ownership of and care for our climate? How has COVID-19 impacted your ability to be in nature?

This new mural is a partnership between Groundwork Somerville and the Somerville Arts Council.
