🖌️🎨Event Details 🎨🖌️
Join us at Payette’s fabrication shop and lend your artistic touch to this community-centered artwork. We’ll be painting the exuberant geometric structure of the “Dancing Dragons,” a steel pavilion with a meandering canopy that will provide seating, shade, and a platform for community activity in the heart of Chinatown.
Drawing inspiration from the traditional Chinese dragon dance, the design embraces the dynamic geometry of the dance above, and the sense of joyful gathering below. And we want YOU to be a part of it!
✅ No painting experience? No problem! This event is open to everyone, regardless of your artistic ability. It’s all about community involvement, so bring your friends and family and let’s paint together!
📍 Where: Payette’s Fabrication Shop, 12 Channel St., Boston
📅 When: 08/12/2023
⏰ Time: TBD
Let’s gather together to create something beautiful for our community. Not only will you contribute to the painting of “Dancing Dragons,” but you will also become a part of Boston Chinatown’s legacy.
Come, let’s color our community with creativity, collaboration and a sense of shared purpose. See you there!
