Celebrating “Seven Moons Junction” by Shinique Smith

Written by Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy in Public Art
After two weeks, some 140 hours of work by the mural painters, and 40 gallons of paint emerging as incredibly detailed, vibrant patterns of color and shape…
Dewey Square is alive with new public art!
We celebrated the completion of the mural last night with a reception in Dewey Square! Live music from the Ethiopian pop, soul and funk inspired Debo Band got the party started, while painters from Artists for Humanity, a community arts organization supporting young artists, displayed their homage to Shinique’s mural. Roxy brought the cheese and Zumix brought the sound, making this collaborative event a great kickoff for the autumn season.
Jesse, the Greenway’s Executive Director said the event felt like a true community gathering, and Shinique Smith commented that it was one of the best art receptions she’s ever had. What an amazing opportunity for everyone! Special thanks to the MFA and Overall Murals for all their hard their work.
See you on the Greenway,
