Bringing Nature to Medford Square
I'm planning on repainting at least 10 electrical boxes in Medford Sq. to revitalize the area and bring nature into an urban environment for all to enjoy. I've consulted local ecologists to develop a list of plants and animals endemic to the Mystic River area and am working with the Medford Arts Council and Mystic River Watershed Association to get the citizens of Medford to vote on which ones they would like to see represented. Each box will portray one plant and one animal, and will also have a fact or poem about those species. These boxes will replace cracked, faded, and peeling designs with bright, informative blocks of color all the way around the square.
