The following is a press release from the Framingham Public Schools

FRAMINGHAM – ramingham Public School’s Department of Community Resource Development (CRD), Downtown Framingham, Inc., and the Framingham High School (FHS) Art Club are proud to present: We Are Many Colors, Part II.

Building on previous art exhibitions, this collaborative effort will result in a beautiful mural on one of downtown Framingham’s exposed walls.

Working together, these groups have developed an event that highlights student art as a means to celebrate global citizenship and diversity.

The Department of Community Resource Development collaborated with Framingham High School’s Art Club to create an exhibit that would reflect the culture diversity we have in the city of Framingham.

In February, as part of Black History month, FHS Art Club held Part I of the ‘We Are Many Colors’ Art Exhibit to highlight African Americans and their influence on art.

“The mission of the Framingham High School Art Club and the National Art Honor Society is to improve and beautify their community through visual art,” said Caroline DiCicco, FHS Art Teacher and Student Advisor for the FHS Art Club and the National Art Honor Society. “This is the perfect opportunity for these student artists to create a public work of art that both celebrates the unique diversity of our community and engages with community members, but also allows them to leave their mark behind to inspire future generations.”

Framingham residents and community members are encouraged and invited to stop by ‘We Are Many Colors, Part II’ at Tesoro Supermarket 80 Hollis St, Framingham MA 01701 this Saturday, May 18, between 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This event will feature a live mural painting by Framingham High School students on the south-facing wall of Tesoro Supermarket.
