The WCJCDC has completed three in a series of five murals that will celebrate the history and current culture of West Concord.
The second in the series, Art Scramble 2: Our Local Farms, was unveiled in May of 2021 on the side of Saltbox Kitchen, a Farm-to-Table restaurant in West Concord at the corner of Beharrell Street and Commonwealth Avenue. The imagery ranges from farmers of the native Algonquin tribes to farms currently operating. It is a gesture of gratitude to the many farmers who have tended the land and fed us generation after generation.
The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic posed a significant challenge to painting the mural, as it was intended to be made in community by the community. In March of 2020, the staff and volunteers of Art for All made and delivered to people's homes the supplies needed to paint the individual tiles. When the weather improved, they gathered people together outside to paint the remaining tiles. 127 people in and around West Concord painted the 299 six inch tiles that make up the 5 1/2 by 11 1/2 foot mural.
