McKendry “Arts” Boston
Joe McKendry (Senior Critic, Illustration) was recently featured in the Boston Globe for his work in founding the non-profit We Art Boston. The fund, established by dozens of artists contributing paintings or illustrations, helps children and families get the treatment they need when faced with a tragedy. The initiative began in response to the Boston Marathon bombings, but has since expanded, and funds the emergency and trauma fund at Boston Children’s Hospital. Some of the art is currently on display at the hospital, on a rotating basis on the first floor as well as in the hallways where children are hospitalized.
