Installation at North Shore Community College
I was recently contacted by Peter Shaffer of Dimella Shaffer Architects, in Boston, to do a painting for the new Allied Health Professions and Student Services Building at at North Shore Community College in Danvers, MA.
This building is the first state-funded Net Zero Energy Building in Massachusetts. Because of the building’s environmental focus, Mr. Shaffer proposed a painting that implied a connection between the building’s greenness and the school itself. The school’s logo mark is a lighthouse beacon, so it seemed expanding that into a North Shoreish lighthouse landscape might work. With only a weekend to turn the piece around, the school approved the painting, which was digitized and output onto the large panels in the photo above.
