Arts advocate Mickey Love believes the county’s unsurpassed natural beauty and growing creative class inspires and nurtures artists in ways few places can. As Executive Director of the Dorchester Center for the Arts (DCA), Love has been a driving force overseeing the expansion and relocation of this popular attraction. Along with galleries, performance venues, special events and public art, the DCA is an anchor tenant in Cambridge’s Arts & Entertainment District. Love is fond of saying; you can’t “throw a rock in Dorchester without hitting the arts.” She points to the caboose next to the train station that houses Powell Realtors, now a canvas for renowned Church Creek muralist Michael Rosato. The latest public art project beautifully illustrates her point, as Chesapeake’s iconic landscape comes to life on Cambridge Creek. Visit the DCA, and discover how water can move you to paint a masterpiece.
