The ArtLine is coming to Malden!
The project will be funded primarily through grassroots fundraising and we need your help!
We must reach our goal of $27,000 in order to receive the match from Mass development. Donations are tax deductible!
The Malden section will feature several murals inspired by famous local artist, such as those in the slideshow above.
Drawing inspiration from the High Line, the Rose Kennedy Greenway, and the mural festivals in Lynn and Worcester, Malden Arts is partnering with Groundwork Somerville, Mass Development, and the City of Malden to transform Malden and its section of the Northern Strand Community Trail (NSCT) into the ARTLine.
The ARTLine will be a premier public art gallery with miles of professional murals, sculptures and community hubs. These hubs will feature gathering spaces with bursts of art, greenscapes, pedestrian and bicycle accommodations, which will fuel economic growth through the act of creating unique and interesting places throughout Malden.
By focusing on the creation of gathering spaces in and around public art, the ArtLine will increase foot traffic at the hubs which will in turn benefit local area businesses. The ArtLine will encourage use of the trail for exercise for those on wheels and on foot, and share public art with all the diversity of Malden residents and visitors
Several of the Large Wall Murals will feature artwork by well-known artists, musicians, and writers who were born in Malden, as well as a River of Ties Mural celebrating the old rail corridor and the Malden River which both run though Malden.
Malden Arts is tremendously grateful to the Mayor's Office, Malden City Council, the Malden Redevlopment Authority, and Groundwork Somerville for their generous collaboration on the ARTLine
