Framingham: City of Dreams is a traveling exhibition featuring 18 residents of Framingham who have helped to make our city a better place for all of us.
This project aims to celebrate the contributions and life stories of these neighbors as integral members of our community and as a source of inspiration for young audiences.
The photographers and writers for this project are four Seniors from Framingham High School: Anton Bica, Fiona Burke, Casey Corcoran and Lucas Gustafson. This exhibition was produced by Claudia Ruiz Gustafson and is funded in part by a grant from the Framingham Cultural Council (Mass Cultural Council).
