Murals a favorite art form in Nashua – Lowell Sun

NASHUA, NH – At least one Nashua resident recently discovered black and red spray-painted graffiti on his property. He was particularly upsetting because he had spent the previous 2 and a half days scraping and filling the concrete to prepare the area for sealing. The woman said the authors had also demolished her concrete work of hers.

Nashua police are investigating the incident, but the disfigurement makes you scratch your head and wonder why. And you pray it doesn’t happen to your property.

Meanwhile, Queen City is trying to stop a growing graffiti problem. An abandoned railway truss (now a popular footbridge) located over the Merrimack River that people love to use for walking, running, and cycling has recently been marked with graffiti.

Manchester Police established Manchester Operation GRIT – Graffiti Removal Intel Tips. When you find illegal graffiti, you can upload photos to manchestercrimeline.org.

On a more positive note, my city has created beautiful urban murals or legal graffiti walls all over downtown, and a new mural was just unveiled last week on the corner of Main and Bowers streets on the red brick wall, wall south of The Doorway of Greater Nashua building, not far from the South New Hampshire Medical Center. The Doorway program helps people with an opioid use disorder or other substance use disorder.

Positive Street Art is the master behind Gate City’s outdoor urban paintings. It is a non-profit organization whose mission is to “inspire a passion for urban arts productively and build stronger communities through educational workshops, community events and arts services.”

Positive Street Art has been sharing its colorful vision here for 10 years. You can spot these attractive murals on the walls of buildings that would otherwise go unnoticed. Graffiti walls often paint a story about a community and its people, increase appreciation for the arts, and attract foot traffic throughout the city.

The Rotary Club of Nashua West commissioned Positive Street Art to create the inspirational mural that would represent the organization’s 50 years of “Service Above”. And I must say that it is an extraordinary work of art. You can’t help but notice the large mural while driving or walking.

Congratulations to Positive Street Art and its talented lead artist Manuel Phelany Ramirez and outstanding fellow artists on another masterpiece gracing the Gate City.

Meanwhile, the Rotary Club West of Nashua continues its fine deeds throughout the area under the leadership of Cecilia Ulibarri, club president (Matt Laliberte is the president-elect). Ulibarri is also president and co-founder of Positive Street Art and coordinator of constituent services and cultural affairs for the city of Nashua.

The Rotary Club West of Nashua has extended its reach to many. Here are some of the many organizations that have benefited from it: Adult Learning Center, Boys & Girls Club, Home Health and Hospice, Humane Society of Greater Nashua, Nashua Senior Activity Center, Nashua Special Olympics, Southern NH HIV / AIDS Task Force, and Symphony of the New Hampshire.

There are times I like to end my columns with a great quote from a great person because they always say it better than I ever could.

On October 26, 1963, President John F. Kennedy gave a speech at Amherst College in honor of the late poet Robert Frost:

“If at times our great artists have been the most critical of our society, it is because their sensitivity and their concern for justice, which must motivate every true artist, make him aware that our nation is not at all. height of its maximum potential “.
