Alex Makes Art's Latest
"Works in Progress"
Lead Artist at the MFA
Alexandra Adamo is currently the Lead Artist
for the Museum of Fine Art's
Community Arts Initiative
I proposed a giant installation called, "From Farm to Craft Table" that I'll be working with 150 kiddos to bring to life over the next 10-months. This work is going to be accompanied by a documented media piece of the process, and will live in its own wing of the museum for 6-months. It will be able to be seen starting in May, 2023.
Learn more about the project here!
Stay tuned for updates through out the process of building this massive piece of artwork and my experience during this journey.

Current Street Art Projects
Alex has been working in Central Square since Fall began!
The (4) Pride benches in front of City Hall have been striped down, white washed, and are getting redone with the Progressive Flag. Wait until you catch a glimpse of what Alex'll be doing with the railings... Heheh.
The Dance Complex celebrated their 30th Anniversary with an outrageous community event. Alex live painted (12) jersey barriers and invited the community to paint inside of her designs during the happening.
Keep your eyes on the transitions they'll be making over the next few weeks, as Alex puts finishing touches and extra details on these works.
Headed to Texas on Sabbatical
November will mark a month long sabbatical.
Alex will be attending Lucky Star Art Camp to take a whole bunch of new art workshops, sit by the campfire, and meet like-lovers of
folk art and craft.
After refining skills and learning some new thangs, Alex will be mentored 1:1 by fiber artist, Barbara Atwell, getting comfortable with wet felting processes for her 2023 curriculum
with her MFA students.
About Alex Makes Art

art events for kids and adults.
Then the world changed, and Alex took her art instruction online! Alex Makes Art created multitudes of programming, from Crafternoons on Zoom, to SAVI: Social Art Virtual Immersion. Later launching Alex Makes Art in the Park and other miscellaneous pod happenings. Alex's unique

These days, Alex orchestrates intergenerational crafting experiences anywhere she can. These may appear in circuits at a block party, chalk pop-ups on a big ol' boardwalk, or on film set. Creating colorful, joy-filled public spaces through street art is another route that Alex manifests her creativity these days and has dozens of living installations around Cambridge, Massachusetts.

in her kids that important lesson.
Creativity isn't necessarily copied--
it's inspired from within."
