New mural pays tribute to Kensington’s music, farmers’ markets, diversity and public transit

A larger-than-life painting pays tribute to the music, farmers’ markets, diversity and public transit in Kensington.

Local young artists Meaghan McNamara and Matt Corrado spray-painted the city’s first mural.

It’s been more than a year in the making and was completed just a few days ago.

The bright greens, blues and oranges transformed the once plain, white wall off of Howard Avenue, spanning about 75′ wide and 28′ tall on the edge of M&T Bank.

“I had two young people in their 20s, and (McNamara and Corrado) were anxious to put their stamp on their community,” said Tracey Furman, Mayor of Kensington. “That’s an age group that’s not always engaged, and it was important to me to engage them.”

Mayor Furman said the project cost several thousand dollars.
