RESIDENTS INVITED TO MURAL UNVEILING IN NORTH HARTFORD PROMISE ZONE

(October 16, 2015) Mayor Pedro E. Segarra invites all members of the community to the unveiling of a large-scale mural in the Upper Albany neighborhood, which is part of the newly, federally designated North Hartford Promise Zone.  The project is a collaborative effort between the City of Hartford, the North Hartford Promise Zone, KNOX, Inc., Community Solutions, Art of Tao LaBossiere and Scott’s Jamaican Bakery. 

“This beautiful work of art is a wonderful way of acknowledging and celebrating the people and places that make North Hartford unique and vibrant,” said Mayor Segarra. “I want to thank Tao LaBossiere, the artists and everyone involved in this project.” 

Master artist and Connecticut muralist Tao LaBossiere led a team of artists who created the mural on the side of Scott’s Jamaican Bakery on Albany Avenue. The artists were selected based on current or former residency in North Hartford and artistic experience. Inspired by the places and people of the neighborhood, each artist created a painting within the mural that represents what ‘home’ means to them. The artists include:

  • Jose Camacho with Corey Pane
  • Che’ La’Mora
  • Dwight Teal, Jr.
  • Jackie Allen-Doucot
  • Joy Monroe
  • Samantha Jenkins

The event will feature live music, snacks, ‘green’ giveaways and an opportunity to meet the artists.
