I’ve been out and about photographing many of Nashua’s growing art community events. I’m a little behind in writing about the unveiling of Vivian’s dream, which I attended for my own personal enjoyment to watch the artist, Barbara Andrews, sign the finished mural located on West Pearl Street behind TD Bank. The unveiling event was held on the 20th of July. Yes, I know, I’m really behind in my blog postings.
Much has been written about the inspiration for the mural, so I won’t cover that here, but I recommend you google to read about Vivian Walker and her dream. It’s a lovely story in itself.
My focus for this blog post is about the artist and what she said during the unveiling which resonated with me. She told the crowd of onlookers that the reason she creates art is to simply make people happy; that’s all. Simple words that expresses what art is all about.
