Morgan Blair POW WOW

321 Main St, Worcester, MA 01608

“Morgan's probably the first instance of us having a wall that was able to touch on a concept specific to the city. Initially Morgan wasn't going to be on that wall. That was not who we arranged for that wall. We pitched, somebody else who Morgan happen to be working with and the person said, 'Oh my God, you know, it's funny, it's in Worcester. You should have Morgan because she is from the area.’ Come to find out, Morgan Blair is actually the daughter of Robert Blair who had been handling maintenance for Mechanics Hall for 40 years. Every shape in the mural corresponds to something found inside the Hall and Morgan said that as an homage to her dad, it was a way of bringing the Hall outside, which is really awesome. And so it's fun because there's now the Robert Blair room inside of Mechanics Hall and now you have a Morgan Blair wall on the outside.”
