Bryne Project to be unveiled Sept. 1

Aug 29, 2023

MIDDLEBORO — In collaboration with the Middleboro Cultural Council, the Office of Economic & Community Development will unveil the final results of The Byrne Project, a public art window installation that opened June 24.

The large street-side windows of MCCAM Studio on South Main Street have displayed the original poem about the power of the sun throughout the summer, allowing the text to burn into a replica of an old map of the town.

The closing will reveal the results of the art project. The event is scheduled in conjunction with Middleboro’s First Friday, organized by a group of downtown merchants. Many businesses will be open late that night and feature sidewalk displays, including Coffee Milano and ReVibed.

In addition, the Massachusetts Archaeological Society, located at 17 Jackson St., will feature a lecture at 7 p.m. about King Philip's War.

Savannah Byrne, the artist and songwriter who designed the stencil at Middleboro High School’s Innovation Lab, will provide an artist talk about her process at 6 p.m. 

The Byrne Project, a playful pun on the artist’s name and the installation’s focus on the sun's power, aims to integrate art into the daily lives of residents and visitors. This artwork fosters community pride and highlights the sun as a symbol of strength and interconnectedness.
