Home to the New England Patriots and New England Revolution, Patriot Place in Foxborough, MA, was home to a different type of competition recently.

For the past two years, Patriot Place (an indoor and outdoor entertainment area that features a mall, bowling alley and a host of stores and restaurants located next to the home stadium of the New England Patriots – Gillette Stadium) has hosted a street art contest.  Squares on the walkway at Patriot Place were reserved for a number of competitors to display their best work of art.  The works of art ranged from flowers to cupcakes.  Mmmm, cup cakes.

The artists ranged in all ages and backgrounds.

I was waiting to post this until after photos of the winning art works were posted on the web site for the event.  But, it has been almost a month and they still haven’t been posted yet, although the names of the winners have been posted.  So, I don’t know which pieces of art won.  But, they were all winners to me!  There were some very creative works there!

About New England Nomad

Hi I'm Wayne. Welcome to my blog. I am a true New Englander through and through. I love everything about New England. I especially love discovering new places in New England and sharing my experiences with everyone. I tend to focus on the more unique and lesser known places and things in New England on my blog. Oh yeah, and I love dogs. I always try to include at least one dog in each of my blog posts. I discovered my love of photography a couple of years ago. I know, I got a late start. Now, I photograph anything that seems out of the ordinary, interesting, beautiful and/or unique. And I have noticed how every person, place or thing I photograph has a story behind it or him or her. I don't just photograph things or people or animals. I try to get their background, history or as much information as possible to give the subject more context and meaning. It's interesting how one simple photograph can evoke so much. I am currently using a Nikon D3200 "beginner's camera." Even though there are better cameras on the market, and I will upgrade some time, I love how it functions (usually) and it has served me well. The great thing about my blog is you don't have to be from New England, or even like New England to like my blog (although I've never met anyone who doesn't). All you have to like is to see and read about new or interesting places and things. Hopefully, you'll join me on my many adventures in New England! View all posts by New England Nomad
