Pigeon is coming to Berwick
After several pop-ups art shows along the wall and in town, in 2014 the BAA gathered together the community to create a mural that drew attention to the town wall, the art scene and to show citizens that they have a great chance at creating their own future.
In a not-so-sorrowful goodbye, it will be fitting to welcome in the new epoch with Pigeon's MAINERS project on the walls as a last art hurrah and a welcome to progress and growth. The people of the town are embracing a new vision of Berwick with open arms, seeing our border town as the gateway to Maine that it is. The perspective and voice of the people in the community that will rebuild has been largely considered… the carpenters, the entrepreneurs, the artists, the sandwich makers, students, elderly and the developers and visionaries have all been generously giving of their voices to the Envision Berwick Committee. The EBC's efforts over the last few years, and their charrettes to edit the many voices into one are beginning to successfully redefine the town into a single shared vision. The growth may be difficult at times, as anything new or strange sometimes is, but it should be well worth the efforts!
