My first time applying to a city mural project we were given a theme. Our theme was to express pride in Peabody through our art with aspects of what truly makes the city a community. I was so excited to submit my work to the first round of an amazing opportunity I couldn’t wrap my mind around what is was I was going to do. My ideas bounced around until I was certain of what it was that gave me pride being a resident to this city. The initial inspiration came to me as I passed by a park and saw children and parents playing with bubbles. What my design is to me is the actuality of the vast melting pot that resides within out city lines and how everyone is connected to the history and advancements of this place. When I got the acceptance I was completely blown away and was very eager to get to work right away. Featured below is the timeline of my design coming to life. In my work I incorporated historical building that are found around the city and the variety of helping hands that are our friends, neighbors and families occupying where we call home.
