Today brings us chapter 6 of our public art Q&A with various Lynners around the city. If you would like to donate to the "Ghosts of Lynn" project visit our PAGE and check it out! This week we chatted with Maleeka, a lifelong resident who founded Lynn's Knit-a-thon, a group of lovely knitters who make blankets to give out to families in need. Here is what she had to say about public art.
What brought you to Lynn?
What is your personal favorite public art installation?
I may be a bit biased, but seeing my hubby's photo huge and on the wall under the bridge was an extremely proud moment for me. I found myself purposefully driving through Central Square just so I could see it again.
What was your reaction when the big photos first appeared?
I thought it was a great addition and transformation to Downtown. It was nice to see something positive, inspiring, nice, big and prominent for everyone to see.
Lynn Lynn City of Sin, ignore it or embrace it?
I embrace it. Although I do get sick of hearing it over and over.
Starry Night or The Scream?
