The Framingham Centre Common Cultural District (FCCCD) announced a public art project, “Many Cultures, One Heart,” designed to highlight the many artistic and ethnic faces of Framingham. The project centers on 38”x40” heart sculptures which will represent the richness of art, culture, history, and recreation that the City of Framingham offers.
The hearts will be painted by local artists who will represent the diversity of the many communities living in Framingham.
“We see this project as a fabulous way to honor the artistic and cultural
diversity of the city,” stated FCCCD Board Chair Aimee Siers. “We look forward to these sculptures adding a beautiful, creative statement to Framingham’s landscape, enhancing the vibrancy of the city.”
The sculptures will be designed and created during the spring and unveiled on June 18 during a multicultural festival on the Centre Common. In addition, the project aims to promote tourism in the city as these hearts will be in multiple locations that people can locate, take pictures with and post on social media. Projects like this with different types of sculpture have been a success in different parts of the country.
Several art organizations and corporations will be sponsoring the sculptures and the project has received additional financial support through grants. If you are an artist interested in designing a sculpture, contact Stacey David at email@example.com or click here for more information.
