South End City Market

When planning its second location in the South End, integrating art was a way for City Market to continue the theme of making the Co-op welcoming to all Members and customers, and to celebrate the reputation of its new location in the South End as an arts destination. They selected two artists to install murals on the East and North sides of the building, and incorporated more of Tara Goreau's work inside the entry way. The building itself, designed by Freeman French Freeman, was also intended to be a subtle art piece telling the story of the Co-op's mission. Everyday scenes from local farms were digitally manipulated into an abstract pattern; the images were then printed on metal panels and mounted on the building’s exterior walls.
