Not that Natick wants you to look down at art, but this week the Select Board will be asked to approve more artists’ paintings on the pavement of Natick Center’s street corners.
The paintings, featuring everything from fish to PEACE to cartoonish cars, are being commissioned through a joint effort of the Natick Community and Economic Development Department and the Natick Center Cultural District. Artists submitted their works for consideration.
These paintings will be located at the intersections of Church, Park, Washington, and East Central Streets, near Town Hall.
Last summer, artists painted the street corners at South Main and Central Street.
The paintings are part of a broader traffic calming effort that would include the installation of more bump-outs and flexible posts at downtown street corners if state funding comes through.
