Article Body: 

These are unprecedented, and extraordinary times. As we hunkefr down, practice social distancing and self isolation, we remember that we’re in this together. We give thanks to the brave front line and emergency service workers for all they are doing. It’s a good time to check in on your family, friends and neighbors who might need help navigating these difficult times. Help support your local artists and businesses who need you now more than ever.
The Natick Center Cultural District (NCCD) is available to support the community, in every way they can. They miss seeing folks at events, but cherish the memories they have and hope to come together soon.
LOVE 01760! Connect While Apart Is a program that brings community members together despite the physical distancing.
Do you love Natick? Here’s a chance to put your love on paper and work together, while we are physically apart.
Everyone is invited to join Natick Center Cultural District, Spark Kindness, local artists, businesses and organizations – to create a piece for a community-wide art project – LOVE 01760!
These individual pieces will be brought together to form one giant installation (think Tunnel of Love) to be displayed at a public event at a date TBD. This project is for everyone and a symbol of our connectedness our resilience, and our unstoppable community spirit!m.
