Help enliven a Boston landmark by taking part in the creation of an exciting new public art piece! The Esplanade Association has commissioned a mural along the Charles River Esplanade, and is partnering with Now + There to produce the work. As we await final approvals, we need to recruit volunteers to help us during the painting phase of the project.

Volunteering will take place on the mural site on the Esplanade, near the Mass Ave footpath. Volunteer duties include ensuring brushes and other materials are clean and organized, running water to the site, providing general information to passers-by, and flagging pedestrian traffic to ensure that work is completed in a safe and timely manner. There is also an opportunity to help out at an upcoming community mural painting day!

We are looking to schedule at least two volunteers on site during all painting days, which are schedule to run August 16 to September 1st. There will be two three-hour volunteer shifts per day, running from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM and 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM.

Volunteers should be comfortable interfacing with the public, and should be able to stand outdoors for three hours at a time. Some moderate lifting may be required of volunteers who help with materials.

This is a great opportunity work with a talented local artist and help Now + There bring more vibrant, impactful public art to Boston.
