Paint It UP
We wanted to connect with the community through visual expression. We wanted to have residents give their feedback in a visual way. We also wanted to expose the community to live painting. On the corner of Dudley and Columbia Road in Uphams Corner we hung a 6ft x 5ft canvas from the side of the UP Truck and invited residents to become artist for the day. We also commissioned a local artist Stephen Hamilton to paint a canvas live. Normally you would see an artist painting live in areas like Cambridge and Boylson Street. We wanted Uphams Corner residents to have this kind of exposure.
