Tewksbury Visitors

The Essex Street Gateway Community Mural is a regional hit. In January, an art class from the Brooks School came to learn about the artistic process. This week, a Tewksbury church group (left) came for a tour. And in May, artist Jeff Grassie will discuss the mural with high school students at the Chelmsford Public Library--thanks to community bridge-building by Congresswoman Niki Tsongas.

Team Supports April 20 Clean-Up
Earth Day LogoOnce again, Team Haverhill members will pitch in to help with the citywide Earth Day Clean-Up on Saturday April 20. We expect to be working at two sites: Bradford Rail Trail (where we will be installing sculptures in 2014 and 2015), and Tilton School (where HYMN mentors work with third graders). Haverhill residents will be gathering at 8:30 am at the Citzens Center for coffee and welcome, then proceeding to many different sites around the city. More information at the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce website.

On June 6 and 7, a delegation from Team Haverhill will take part in the Creative Communities Exchange in Portland, ME. Led by Leota Sarrette, Jeff Grassie, and Susan Kane, the team will offer a workshop about the Essex Street Gateway Community Mural as a "creative placemaking" initiative, and share practical learning with arts-and-culture colleagues from all over New England.
