Region: Eastern Massachusetts
The City of Chelsea seeks artists and creative teams to continue the transformation of the Division Street Neighborway with a roadway mural extending four blocks and the design of a set of creative crosswalks. A companion roadway mural nearby on the block of Winnisimmet Street in Chelsea Square will support the activation of that area with the pilot of a shared street.
This project is made possible by funding provided by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s Shared Streets and Spaces initiative to address the impacts of the COVID-19 public health crisis. Through design interventions in two downtown locations the City of Chelsea will support public health, make mobility through the downtown safer, and support the viability of small businesses in the district. This scope of work is part of a coordinated recovery effort in the district that includes community programming and special events, additional public art, small business support, and district marketing.
