"I thought it was cool that something we were part of was going to be displayed downtown," exclaimed Bradford! "Even though it was a challenge at first for me to do a mirror image on the back, as we wanted the scene to look life-like and realistic, it paid off in the end."
Christie Smith, art teacher at Pepperell High, was proud of her students and the discussion their work has created downtown and in class. ""Art in a public space gives opportunity for community engagement," Smith said. "Students and teachers at Pepperell Middle School and Pepperell High School were enthusiastic to learn about the HeART and multiple discussions about it were initiated in class." She added, "The HeART resulted in people looking at, and talking about, art."
