Dare Family Services

Many times the children will come into the office while awaiting placement or before meetings, feeling sad, angry or nervous. On a daily basis, foster parents, social workers, and clinical staff are in the office attending meetings/trainings. Donated artworks will hang in the reception area, hallways, and meeting rooms to help make the place feel more comfortable, warm, and happy. It will also make the space feel more peaceful and safe to people who have been though so much turmoil and daily stress; and help change the attitude and feelings of all those who access the space.

Malden Senior Community Center

Art Placements: 2008

Malden Senior Community Center
The new Malden Senior Community Center is a newly developed property providing services to Malden area seniors who previously utilized a center in a windowless basement. Needless to say, the new building is a great improvement and will have the space to make all seniors welcome with social areas, class offerings, community events, etc. The donated art will hang in areas where seniors will be sitting (waiting for a ride, resting between classes, reading in the library, chatting with friends, etc) and will stimulate discussion and encourage socialization. It will add to the welcoming environment and truly enhance the space for seniors, staff, and volunteers who utilize the space.
