Cinda Danh and Michael Aghahowa are artists and activists, born and raised in Lynn, MA. Cinda and Michael are working in collaboration with Ernie’s Harvest Time, a mid-sized grocery in downtown Lynn and youth from The Food Project (www.thefoodproject.org) to create a wraparound mural at Ernie’s that celebrates voices from within the Lynn community who are doing the important work of imagining, dreaming and growing a more resilient food system. In a moment when rapid development and displacement is happening in Lynn, this mural aims to center the stories of the people who have been here, are still here, and hopefully will be here for the future of Lynn.
