Boston, MA 02121
After three installations of powerful murals along Blue Hill Avenue, Now + There will celebrate the closing of the final work, “Deeply Rooted in the NeighborHOOD, homage to Allan Rohan Crite,” by notable artists Johnetta Tinker and Susan Thompson on May 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The third and final installation has been part of Now + There’s critically-acclaimed “Mentoring Murals” project which paired six celebrated Boston-based Black muralists to create works together over the last year. First in the series was Paul Goodnight and Larry Pierce’s “No Strings Detached” followed by Ekua Holmes and London Parker-McWhorter’s “Honoring the past, seeding the future.” Together, the artists blended collage, quilting, and painting techniques in this bright tribute to daily life in Roxbury, Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, and Mattapan.
