They’re not exactly Bob Ross, but Mayor Joe Ganim and U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal, who know a little something about verbal paint jobs, assisted gifted artist Alicia Cobb to add their touches on a mural located at the Warren Street and South Frontage Road underpass.
Now, a bit about the real artist:
Part of my purpose is to honor my ancestors and create art for those who couldn’t. My work is a celebration of the human body and spirit through everything it endures. Breaking away from conventional canvas and concepts, I create stories of survival and beauty on human skin and through fine art. I wish to inspire others to be unapologetically themselves.
