For several years ( since 2013) David Phillip’s bronze turtles, frogs, spheres and connecting features have captivated visitors in Playspace, the lively popular playground on the Esplanade. Recently I renewed my appreciation of their subtly balanced momentum and how readily they stimulate stories.
Thanks to David Fichter, one morning in August 2018 I got to visit the Mystic River Mural team at work in the Mystic Activity Center. My photos from a few moments hint at the numerous hours of planning, researching, sketching, designing, projecting, shaping, painting and much much more by teens and adults involved in the project. Outdoor explorations along the river were key features of the project, but indoor studio time was key to creating the mural panels added to the ongoing mural outdoors along Mystic Avenue.
I want to speak out for a poem that speaks for our sidewalks.
In awe of the art, I’m excited to announce the completion of the latest monumental mural in Dewey Square. I plan to come into its presence many times before it is painted over by another artist or artist team next year. For now I’m posting photos, quotes, and links so you can join me in learning more about and from Super A (Stefan Thelen).

Large lovely new nests rest on granite posts designed decades ago by William Reimann.
Please help me solve the mystery of who created the nests!
Eager for any clues or comments,
IMAGINE (aka Sneha Shrestha) Shares Wondrous Ways to Brighten Brick, as in her Very Tall Mural in Cambridge
Here are images from my visits to IMAGINE’s recently completed mural in Cambridge and a few quotes from sources that describe her art. I hope that these will lead you to sites with fascinating scenes and stories that engage you in her process, purpose and perspective!
