Wayland Cultural Council announces new Painted Utility Boxes in Wayland

The Wayland Cultural Council is excited to introduce our first two painted utility boxes. If you haven’t seen them, look when you get a chance!  The WCC sponsored two artists to paint the boxes through Ma Cultural Council funds. The theme was to reflect nature, the beautiful green spaces and wildlife in our area.

Bryan Clocker, a printmaker and illustrator from Maynard, painted the beautiful birds in the marsh setting at the corner of East Plain Street and RT 27 by Fire Station 2.  Bryan is an active member of the W Gallery in Wayland.

Nayda Cuevas, an Arlington artist painted the “Madre Gaia” a design to contemplate on Mother Earth, along the rail trail near the library. The female figure is inspired by the Taino Indians native to the island of Puerto Rico. Madre Gaia aims to remind the viewer that nature and human fragility are not separate.

Wayland Cultural Council’s mission is to grant state funds to individuals and organizations that support cultural projects which benefit the community. The WCC is town committee comprised of volunteer members appointed by the Select Board.

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to learn more and email wccmembers@wayland.ma.us to express interest in becoming a member.

We hope you enjoy viewing the art and we look forward to bringing cultural projects of all types to Wayland.
