A new piece of public art located in Main South will be unveiled on Sunday, according to an announcement from the Regional Environmental Council and Main South Business Association.

The piece was designed and created by the Main South Business Association and aims to welcome visitors and celebrate the neighborhood.

The unveiling will take place in the afternoon at 807 Main St.

The piece was funded by a $40,000 MassDevelopment Transformative Development Initiative Creative Catalyst Grant, which was awarded in January 2020 to the Regional Environmental Council, a nonprofit based in Worcester.

The grant also went toward a POW! WOW! Mural on the YouthGROW Farm, and a recycled mosaic art installation at the community garden on Oread Place, per the announcement.

Other groups were involved with the new Main South art piece, including Clark University, representatives from the neighborhood, the Main South Community Development Corp., the City of Worcester, YMCA of Central Massachusetts, and Main South Beacon Brightly Neighborhood Association.
