The Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA) is partnering with MaldenArts on a mural project that will enliven a small pocket park in front of the CDB Garage at the corner of Route 60, Middlesex and Exchange Streets.
The mural will be hung on the Exchange Street side of the garage in the area known as FitzGerald Park named after the late David R. FitzGerald, former longtime administrator of the MRA.
The mural features caricatures by former Malden resident and children’s book author and illustrator Ed Emberley. The MaldenArts group is working with art students from Malden High School, Malden Catholic High School and the Mystic Valley Regional Charter High School.
Mr. Emberley is expected to be on hand for the ribbon cutting scheduled for May 23. The CBD Garage is owned by the MRA.
