Over the past summer, Watertown High School’s artists proved their town’s artistic potential yet again when they created another large-scale mural.

The building on Baptist Walk in Watertown Square provided the blank canvas for the mural that would become, "Tapestry of Cultures," as painted by Watertown High School students in the summer of 2014.

The building on Baptist Walk in Watertown Square provided the blank canvas for the mural that would become, “Tapestry of Cultures,” as painted by Watertown High School students in the summer of 2014.

Much like the one painted last year, which was located between Waverley Avenue and Whites Avenue, on Watertown’s Linear Path, this mural was done to represent the vast cultural diversity that can be found in Watertown.

The name of the mural is “Tapestry of Cultures,” and it can be found on Baptist Walk in Watertown Square. It includes different cultural symbols and fabric patterns, and represents aspects of cultures from all over the world. Like the last mural, this one was also supported by the Watertown Cultural Council.

The mural project was led by professional artist Gregg Bernstein, who also supervised the students for last summer’s mural. He created the design with the help of Watertown High School students, who submitted their ideas for the mural last year.

The students who painted the mural were Aaseia Ahmed, Liana Aleksanyan, Marvin Aramthip, Katy Bedig, Caitlyn D’Amico, Brianna Hache, Julia Harrington, Emily Hart, Sedra Katerji, Alain Mondesir, Svetlana Sheehan, and Abi Vershbow.
