An Artful Way to Get Around
If you've seen our shuttle, you know its's an artful mode of transport that livens up the streets of Cambridge, but did you know that his colorful and whimsical image was designed by a local artist in collaboration with the Cambridge Arts Council?
Entitled Birds, Composition 3, each of the images in the work was hand designed and hand colored, and then the entire composition was assembled in Photoshop by local artist Mireli Brooks (her real name is Miriam E. Bucheli). Isn't that impressive? Mireli is an illustrator, children's book author, educator and scientist with a Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology. Originally from Ecuador, Mireli lived in the New York/New Jersey area from 1987 until she moved to Cambridge in 2002.
Freepoint Hotel Cambridge, Tapestry Collection is connected with Mireli through the Cambridge Arts Council, a city agency that funds, promotes and presents high-quality, community-based arts programming for the benefit of artists, residents and visitors to Cambridge. Established in 1974, the public nonprofit Cambridge Arts Council is one of the oldest and most dynamic arts agencies in the country. Cambridge Arts works to boost the visibility of the arts and drive local economic activity through various programs, including connecting local artists with exhibition opportunities at local corporate and business environments.
Freepoint is delighted to partner with Cambridge Arts Council for this collaboration.
