CitySource Local Creations: The Murals of Cambridge

Rowing Down Mass Ave

Stand near the intersection of Mass Ave, Prospect St. and River St in Central Square. Look East toward Boston, down the right side of the street, and up about 4 stories.

Please tell us if you know the artists who painted this mural and the story of its creation.

In this mural Mass Ave has become a placid blue-green canal. The tall buildings along the block east of Prospect St. are reflected on the water's surface along with the images of a women in a high-collared dress and a straw-hatted man sitting in a green row boat. The man holds a white parasol and the oars, but they all seem suspended in time. Nothing breaks the glassy surface of the water.
