Alexandra Adamo is currently the Lead Artist

for the  Museum of Fine Art's

Community Arts Initiative

2022-2023!

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.

Live Painting during the Dance Complex 30th Anniversary Celebration

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.

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.

AMA on Set.jpg

Alex Adamo is a mixed media maker, small business owner, and leader in creative experiences. Until pandemic hit, she spent her days teaching afterschool in Cambridge and conducting

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

hybrid art community has connected folks around the globe,

 one craft at a time!

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.

 

Alex is very proud to announce her latest position

as the Lead Artist at the Museum of Fine Art's

in her kids that important lesson.

Creativity isn't necessarily copied--

it's inspired from within."
