Genaro Ortega '09

Genaro Ortega '09

Congratulations to MassArt alumnus Genaro Ortega '09 (BFA in Art & Design)! Mayor Martin J. Walsh recently announced that Genaro has been selected to create a mural at Peters Park in the South End following an open call for artists through a Request for Proposal. Ortega will work with a selection of Boston youth to paint the mural in May 2017.

The Peters Park Art Wall was proclaimed a legal graffiti wall in 1986 in an effort to decrease vandalism in the South End. The Boston Art Commission, in partnership with The African Latino Alliance Collective, City Lights, Washington Gateway Main Street, Friends of Peters Park, and Old Dover Neighborhood Association will continue the tradition of curating and programming the Art Wall.
