MaldenArts is pleased to announce on June 15 at 6 pm they will be unveiling the Malden COVID Memorial Park, a pocket park and mural honoring both those who lost their lives and those who helped us through the pandemic.
The COVID Memorial Park includes two sculptures (a fish and a wave), two benches, and a mural of poetry and art from local residents. The pocket park is located at the Franklin Street crossing of the Northern Strand Community Trail and provides a special place to remember and honor the experiences that COVID brought to all of us.
Our thanks to State Senator Jason Lewis who had state funds set aside for Phase 2 of the ARTLine, to Malden City Councillor Debbie DeMaria who provided both the inspiration for the COVID focus and additional funding for the sculptures, and to State Rep. Paul Donato who was instrumental in working with the MBTA regarding the site location.
Please join us for this spirited remembrance.
