SHELTER 2023: “Community Tides” by Silvia Lopez Chavez
Community Tides will be a mural portraying the New Bedford’s community, the fishing industry, its diverse economy, and depiction of life at the intersection of land and water.
Silvia Lopez Chavez will collaborate with New Bedford High School students to create her signature colorful patterns pulled from the student’s local landscapes and everyday lives.
Utilizing acrylic paint, spray paint, and stencils to design various sizes of layered panels, New Bedford’s local youth will explore STEAM technology and design innovation to help contribute to the final design of Community Tides.
In partnership with Northern Pelagic Group (NORPEL), the semi-permanent mural will measure 223 feet in length by 10 feet in height, the first piece of contemporary art on Fish Island.
Community Tides will be shown free and open to the public on the NORPEL exterior wall adjacent to a prominent New Bedford roadway along the New Bedford-Fairhaven Bridge, prominently viewable from the land, sea, and air.
