FRAMINGHAM – Two artists with roots in MetroWest have been preferred to paint murals on two Sudbury River floodgates in Saxonville, but the community group spearheading the venture requires the public’s aid to raise all the cash to comprehensive the perform. 

Mia Cross, a indigenous of Framingham and Lena McCarthy, a native of Wayland, submitted the winning proposal alongside one another.

In retaining with the proposal’s suggestions that the artwork must celebrate the importance of the Sudbury River to Saxonville, the pair made the decision to highlight nature and wildlife in the area. 

“We have intended a mural that is connected by shade and repeating stylistic things that also shares our specific variations. At the heart of each pieces is our appreciation for nature,” the pair wrote in their description.
