A postcard series featuring meaningful work from talented artists in partnership with charitable organizations and curated by Legacy Place.
The second iteration of Art Post features the work of Molly O’Neill, a graphics designer, muralist, and small business owner based in Minneapolis. Molly has garnered awards including Boston’s Best & Brightest Companies to Work For and Boston’s Most Recommended Graphic Designer. Her clients have been featured in publications including The Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, The New York Times, Dwell, and Fast Company. Artist Statement below:
“I came out when I was twenty four, and since then I have been deeply lucky and privileged to find acceptance from almost everyone in my life. When working on this project, I was able to reflect on how being a part of the LGBTQIA+ community has made my life even fuller than I ever thought someone’s life could be.”
“For this piece, the bold, confident, and tall text reads “That big kind of love that people always talk about.” This captures the freedom, openness, and acceptance I have found as I continue to come into my identity as a queer woman. I have found love in a way that we always see in movies, not only for and from my partner, but from my family, the community I get to be a part of, and most importantly–for myself.”
Postcards can be retrieved at The Art Post, located in front of Kendra Scott and across from Banana Republic.
