Celebrating Art in Fitzgerald

Local residents have been gathering to celebrate and support art in the Fitzgerald community and Ella Fitzgerald Park. Last week over 15 community members gathered at Art in Motion for a ceramic workshop, creating their own pieces and helping clean tiles to be installed in the Ella Fitzgerald Park as part of Hubert Massey’s community murals.

Artist Hubert Massey hosted two open studios at the Marygrove Ceramic Studio where he and his team are creating the two murals for the Ella Fitzgerald Park. Community members help design and inspire the murals, providing their visions and values for their Fitzgerald neighborhood.

Join us for two mural installation days and help build and install the murals in the Ella Fitzgerald Park! The events will be held at Ella Fitzgerald Park this Thursday, June 7th from 3-7pm and Saturday, June 9th from 10am-3pm at Grove and Prairie St. Hubert Massey will guide us on Thursday to mosaic the 60 foot mural on the Ella Fitzgerald Park bench.
