  • September 2017 | Mural Installation at Orchardfield Street and Dorchester Avenue (on wall of the Phở Hòa Restaurant)

Artist Ngoc-Tran Vu is lifting up the narrative of the Vietnamese American diaspora experience through a collaborative site-specific mural project in Fields Corner, Dorchester. A diverse, multigenerational steering committee of Dorchester residents is helping to inform and advise the visual stories that will appear in the final installation. This project aims to celebrate the Vietnamese American community while facilitating creative engagement and inspiring a more inclusive and multifaceted Dorchester. A mural activation party is scheduled to take place at the site of the mural at Pho Hòa Restaurant in September 2017. Details will be announced closer to the event.
