Marval's Musical Mural

 Marval completed this masterpiece in just six weeks!

Marval completed this masterpiece in just six weeks!

It all started when…

In the early months of 2018, members of DFI's board of directors, including members of the Framingham Police Departments, collaborated with property owner Richard Cohen to select a rendering for a mural to be painted on the north facing wall of 199 Concord Street.

199 Concord Street was rebuilt after a fire destroyed many of the former businesses in 2017.

Franklin Marval's colorful collage of musical instruments was selected by the group and the first stages of the mural got underway in early June. 

Currently, the wall is primed and the artist is ready to create the colorful gateway that will welcome those travelling south on Concord Street to Framingham's vibrant central business district.

June 12th: The mural is sketched and the instruments are taking shape! St. Stephen's Church is excited about the new mural that will be visible from their parking lot. We appreciate their cooperation with this project and can't wait to welcome more people into Downtown with this colorful, musical mural.

 Progress is being made! This hard-working team has been at it all week, brightening up our downtown one instrument at a time.
