Doujans D’al Hirhoal by Cyrille Conan.
The City of Boston commissioned Cyrille Conan to create this mural series as part of the third round of the Transformative Public Art Program. The Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture allocated more than $1 million toward murals at 10 sites across nine neighborhoods as part of the program. The total budget for this project was $75,000. The mural is located at the Patricia White Apartments (20 Washington Street) in Brighton. On this project, Cyrille collaborated with the:
Patricia White is a Boston Housing Authority (BHA) community for low- and moderate-income elders and people with disabilities. Patricia White offers approximately 216 apartments in an eight-story building. Built in the 1970s, the apartment complex is located on the Brighton/Brookline line near many shops and services. The mural is visible from the street.
Doujans D’al Hirhoal is Breton for "Respecting Longevity". Cyrille worked to create a design that brought joy through the use of color, form and energy.
"In this particular composition, I used my visual language to express nature, lifespans, cycles and beauty as a reflection of the senior residents at the Pat White apartments." - Cyrille Conan
