Almost immediately, the mural became an attraction, with many people stopping in their tracks to take photos of it.
“It just helps us feel like a stronger community and it keeps us connected to Boston,” Mooers said. “We all want to be there for our neighbors. Let’s just hope it becomes a happy memory other than the wound it is now.”
Yesterday, Mooers and others were busy preparing decorations for a candlelight vigil scheduled for 7 p.m. at the city’s gazebo located next to Amesbury Public Library.
Mooers said he is unsure what will happen to the mural and the other works created for the window display. One possibility, he said, is organizing an auction for the artwork with proceeds helping victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.
