Thank You for Your Support
of the 5th Annual Foxborough Street Painting Festival
Our 5th Annual Foxborough Street Painting Festival took place at Patriot Place on Saturday, May 18th, 2019. With the theme “Travel Destinations,” our artists took us across the globe, from Paris to Japan to Brazil and Hawaii. Through the artwork, we were taken on flights with dragons and danced on the beaches of Antarctica with penguins.
Every year, we're blown away by the incredible community support and artist turnout. This year we had artists joining us from 21 different towns to cover the walkways of North Marketplace with 53 vibrantly colored chalk drawings. With the support of the artists, their families, and all the patrons who came out to cheer us on we were able to raise over $1,000 for the Gerald Roy Memorial Scholarship. Mr. Roy was a pillar of our art community, having taught Art at FHS for over 30 years and having served as the K-12 Art Department Head for Foxborough Public Schools. When he started teaching there were only 25 students enrolled in art class, only 1 classroom, and little more than a box of crayons for supplies. Today we are proud to teach over 1,000 aspiring FHS artists in 15 different Art Electives that range from CP to AP level. The Gerald Roy Memorial Scholarship, with the support of Mr. Roy's family and friends, awarded scholarships to four FHS graduating seniors from the Class of 2019, each of the award recipients are currently attending college and majoring in either Art or Education.
Thank you to everyone who continues to come out each May and Live Art Out Loud with us.
We love having you as part of our Foxborough Street Painting Family!
