Festive #ROSlove Window Art Series

In October 2020, members of Roslindale Village Main Street's Design Committee met (virtually) with Mandee Made, a window, sign, and mural artist to brainstorm a series of window art pieces that would be placed at eight different storefronts scattered around the Square.

"We want these to be selfie-friendly, seasonal, and promoting peace, love, and shopping, eating, and drinking locally," said RVMS Executive Director Alia Hamada Forrest.

During the last two weeks in November (#ShopSmall Saturday is November 28th!), you may see artist Mandee Rae Martin out and about Roslindale Village painting windows at: Studio M, FitChoice 24/7, Shanti Restaurant, the RVMS Office, Mi Finca, Blue Star Restaurant, Joanne Rossman: Purveyor of the Unnecessary & the Irresistible, and Distraction Brewing, Co. These beautiful pieces will stick around throughout the holiday shopping season, and depending on the weather, may last even longer. Once Mandee is finished with all eight storefronts, be on the look out for a winter wander scavenger hunt we will share in our e-newsletter! Our hope is to add a little sparkle to the Square during these darker days of colder weather, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This project was made possible thanks to the Boston Main Streets Foundation, The Cooperative Bank, and supporters like you.
