Call for Proposals!

Sax Art is excited to share an opportunity to bring public art to the Saxonville community. This project, through a collaboration with Friends of Saxonville and the Framingham Cultural Council, will fund the creation of two murals on the Sudbury River Floodgates between 1545-1555 Concord Street, Framingham, MA. The theme for these murals is an artistic interpretation of the Sudbury River’s importance to Saxonville’s founding and emergence as an industrial mill hub for Framingham.

The winning proposal(s) will receive $5,000 per floodgate ($10,000 total). Artists may apply individually or as a team. Artists can apply to complete one of the floodgates or both. The artist(s) will be responsible for covering all costs associated with supplies and installation. Please apply here by June 30, 2021.

Donations gladly accepted.
You may donate via Kickstarter here or make a check out to "Friends of Saxonville" and write "Sax Art" on the memo line and mail to Friends of Saxonville, P.O. Box 3236, Framingham MA 01705.

In April 2016, the Friends of Saxonville launched a new committee named the "TrailHeads" which is dedicated to the trails of all types in the Saxonville area. The committee includes several members of the Cochituate Rail Trail (CRT) committee. Because the CRT is essentially done and open, and because the Friends of Saxonville is already involved in the area trails, the Friends wanted to combine the experience and talents to continue the efforts to develop quality recreational trails.
