The installation by Felipe Ortiz is located along the back of the building on the Factory St. Ext. which will act as part of the pathway for the Riverfront Redevelopment Project.
“Dance of the Blue Heron”
112ft x 10ft
The Great Blue Heron, often considered a solitary bird, actually nests and breeds in communal groups called “rookeries.” Ortiz’s flock of majestic herons painted on an underutilized building outside of Nashua’s Clocktower apartments aims to bring this feeling of coexistence and adaptation to the city’s riverwalk. While painting the mural, local residents actively passed through this walkway sharing their river sightings of Great Blue Herons. This mural is for Harry, Harriet, and everyone who enjoys the riverwalk in Nashua.
