The artistic spirit of Malden was on full display as a group of dedicated local artists took on a unique challenge amidst scorching heat and continuous rain. With temperatures soaring and rain showers disrupting their efforts, the artists of Creative Malden demonstrated unwavering commitment in transforming mundane switchboxes into colorful works of art, bringing vibrancy and creativity to Malden’s streets.

Creative Malden received a grant from the City of Malden to continue the City's plan to keep public art a mainstay of the City. Despite the challenging weather conditions, Creative Malden organizers Naomi Kahn, Grace Julian Murthy and Sandy Felder worked to create a lasting impact on the community with the addition of 12 new switchboxes. Each switchbox tells a unique story, reflecting the diversity and cultural richness of Malden.

“We are fortunate to have such talented and determined artists in our City,” said Mayor Christenson. “Not only are their efforts making our streets more vibrant - this project is also an example of how creativity can bring positive change to our community.”

Creative Malden aims to continue their work with the City in their dedication to fostering a vibrant arts scene and embracing creativity in all forms. For more information or to get involved, please contact or visit their website
