This is my love letter to Boston. I'll be making illustrations of my favorite places in Boston throughout the month of May (AKA, Preservation Month). I'll be raffling off a print every weekend. A donation to my campaign enters you into the raffle. You can see my progress here.
But there's more! I'm working with a number of other Boston artists. At the end of the month, we will have a book printed of our Boston creations. Check out their work:
Help the Boston Preservation Alliance preserve the city, its architecture, and the stories of all Bostonians worth telling. This quote is from Illinois Landmarks, but it resonates true for all preservation, "Historic places are more than buildings, they are the story of what remains through resilience and defiance against inequitable policies."
Let's not let our history or our neighborhoods become homogenized.
1 Bay Street. This is the last surviving home on Bay Street. The street lends its name to Bay Village, a collection of early 1800s homes built by the craftspeople who constructed Beacon Hill. Is there a place you think I should draw? Let me know on Instagram. @_MADickey_.
For over 40 years the Boston Preservation Alliance has served the residents of Boston as a nonprofit organization that protects and improves the quality of Boston's architectural and cultural heritage. Through advocacy and education, we bring people and organizations together to influence the future of Boston's historic buildings, landscapes, and communities.
Without our members, donors, and community partners, the voice of the Alliance would fall silent–a growing membership makes our voice stronger because together we make Boston better.
Check out the projects we're currently engaged in and thank you for your continued consideration and support.
