Maria Molteni

Boston artist-in-residence

Maria Molteni collaborated with youth from the BCYF Perkins after school program and peewee basketball community to draft and execute vibrant new painted designs for the Harambee Park basketball courts, neighboring the Perkins Center. Molteni aimed on centering the project on community input and narratives. She held community meetings, created zines with the youth at the Perkins BCYF and coordinated field trips to a variety of art centers to help inspire them. The product was a colorful, dynamic basketball court, filled with words and images that define the Perkins community.
