Morse-Kelley Playground Mural Community Meeting 1/17

Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and Ward 3 Alderman Tom Taylor invite all interested residents to a community meeting to discuss a planned mural for Morse-Kelley Playground, which is currently under construction.  The meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 17th at the Dormition of the Virgin Mary ("Greek Church") Hall, located at 29 Central Street, and will begin at 7:00 p.m. 

Local Artist Joe Barillaro will present examples of his work and solicit your ideas and inspiration for the mural which he will create for the opening of the playground.  In addition to living in the neighborhood, Joe also painted the children's mural at Dickerman Playground. You can see examples of his work here:

Please feel free to bring photographs of the space and the neighborhood as well as personal stories about the park or your experience living in Somerville.
