Over the summer of 2012, Tova facilitated a project that included nine Vernon Street Studio artists designing and painting mural panels to be installed on the outside of the building.  The artists—Heather Balchunas, Michelle Carter, Nicole Duennebier, David Fallon, Andrew Fish, Jen Fuchel, Tova Speter, Gee Wong, and Dorothy Zarren— were selected to showcase the great diversity and high quality of work produced within the building and to help identify the building as an "art space" to passersby who may not be aware of what takes place inside the walls. The hope is that the new panels will brighten and inspire the community for many years to come.

This project was funded with support from Rogers Foam Corporation, and the Somerville Arts Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
