Painting Jersey Barriers
Students from the Center for Citizenship and Social Responsibility (CCSR) at Medford High School have added their own unique beauty and whimsy to the jersey barriers surrounding the outdoor cafe at Shanghai Moon restaurant in Haynes Square. Working together on two afternoons, five students painted all seven jersey barriers with flowers and butterflies. The traffic-facing color scheme of black, red, and white echoes the logo of the restaurant, and the inside dining area evokes the warmth and lightness of summer days. The idea for this project originated with CACHE in Medford and the Medford Chamber of Commerce, and the painting sites are being managed by ArtsMedford, a community organization supporting artists and community.
