When & Where
Team Haverhill is an independent, volunteer action group dedicated to making Haverhill a better place to live, learns, work and play.
From the time Team Haverhill was founded in 2005, public art has been one of its most enduring and popular initiatives. To date, twenty-five murals—of increasing size and complexity—have been commissioned and installed by Team Haverhill with broad community support and sponsorship. Several were created in collaboration with students at the Discovery Club afterschool programs, while the large banner-mural on Wingate Street incorporated the creative work of 32 Haverhill community groups of all ages. Beyond murals, Team Haverhill sponsored the 2009 “Soles of Haverhill Shoe-la-bration” (producing 14 colorful, giant shoe sculptures displayed around the city) and the installation in 2010 of a contemporary sculpture called “The River Path” by nationally-known Haverhill artist Dale Rogers.
Other major Team Haverhill projects include curbside recycling, the Farmer’s Market, River Ruckus and the Haverhill Youth Mentoring Network.
