A Vibrant Facelift for Northeastern University’s Latino/a Student Culture Center

On October 6, the Latino/a Student Culture Center at Northeastern University was more than a building. It was a canvas.

The building, which is at 104 Forsyth St in Boston, is the setting for the latest art on campus, a three sided-mural. It was covered in scaffolding Thursday, but well underway.

Jamal Thorne, an assistant teaching professor in the College of Arts, Media and Design, was onsite Thursday, working on the mural and giving instruction. He said the mural was designed by Latino students and that he’s made it required in five classes he’s teaching for students to come help paint.

Thorne was painting with Kelly Gallagher, a student who works at the center. 

“It’s gonna make the campus more beautiful,” she said.

Barbara Cimatti, the model for one of many figures on the mural, stopped by and briefly chatted with Gallagher, who was working near Cimatti’s likeness. Cimatti explained that she spends many of her days in the center and happened to be on sight when the design was created.

The building will be officially unveiled tomorrow at 3 p.m.
