As part of their 55th anniversary celebration, Madison Park Development Corporation has organized a mobile mural in Nubian Square, created by local artists and a cohort of six youth participants. The mural, “A Love Letter to Roxbury,” celebrates the neighborhood’s history and MPDC’s commitment to the community.
Currently located at 9 Williams Street at the corner of Williams and Washington Streets, the mural uses the colors of the MPDC logo, green, black, red and yellow, as its base. Overlaid on those geometric shapes and colors is the word “Roxbury” in large transparent white letters. The ‘o’ in the word is in the shape of an envelope with a heart seal, underscoring the love letter concept. In the background viewers can spot portraits of MPDC founders such as Ralph Smith and C. Vincent Haynes.
