  1. Dear Ones.

    Thank you for this very inclusive and expansive art project. As an artist I will most certainly get involved. As a psychotherapist and a professor at Lesley University I have some resources you might want to pursue.

    Luca, are you the Luca I met at the SMFA show who is a friend of a friend of Ivette’s?

    For now, two suggestions: you might want to contact Susan Merritt – – who coordinates/curates the shows for the Hynes Convention Center and the Convention Center on the Waterfront.

    Also, Lesley University has a fantastic program in Expressive Therapies. They may be a good resource for your project. And you might be a good resource for their students. You might want to contact Michaela Kirby, Assistant Professor, Expressive Therapies, Phone: 617-349-8682, Email: As I teach at Lesley, please feel free to use my name as the person who suggested you contact her.

    Finally, the Medicine Wheel in South Boston is a wonderful community based strong art program with young people. Michael Dowling is the founder and Director and he might be interested in talking with you. Again, feel free to use my name.

    I will be in touch re: my individual participation very soon.

    Make art, make love, make light.

    • Dear Shaari,

      Thank you so much for reaching out. I send an email to many professors at Lesley and AIB and have not yet heard back from anyone in that community. We would love to have you (and them) involved! Thank you so much for sharing that information and I will be sure to be in touch as soon as I can!

  2. This is a terrific idea to support the greater Boston community, in going forward in its healing and to make the 2014 Marathon the wonderful experience that we all have cherished over the years. My daughter is a budding artist at Winchester High School, who plans on attending art school in September, 2014. She will be attending a 6 week pre-college program at RISD this summer, with a major of painting. Will you be accepting work from such students, or do they need to be more established artists & current art college students?

    Thank you in advance for your response.

    • We are looking for work from anyone, no matter what their level of experience! We would really appreciate any kind of contribution.
      Please let us know if you have any other questions!
