On December 6, 2010, the Somerville School Committee issued commendations to Community Muralist David Fichter and partners at the Somerville Museum for their collaborative work with East Somerville Community School teachers and administrators to help students research, design and paint an 80' x 20' mural that will be installed on the outside of the East Somerville Community School when it is renovated.
Read the 12/10/2010 Boston Globe article about the mural and the East Somerville Community School.
Funding for this two-year project was provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Somerville Arts Council, the ESCS Fire Fund, and the Somerville Art Department.
Take a peek at the mural design created by the students with David Fichter, and to see some pictures of the students as they create this piece of community art. When the mural is finally installed we'll do a formal thank you.
