"Young Legends" by Trinity Rivard (The Howard Building at 41 Federal Street)

The Let It Shine! Public Art Partnership welcomed Trinity Rivard to Pittsfield to paint an original mural entitled "Young Legends" on The Howard Building at 41 Federal Street.

About the Pittsfield Mural: “Young Legends”

“I have relatives all over New England (i.e. Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts) and visited my cousins in Massachusetts when I was much younger. When I found the call for art online, I was excited to have the opportunity to visit again and leave a mural behind. The “Young Legends” mural that I will be installing is a collaboration between myself, the Let It Shine! Partners, and Tony Jackson; our discussions provided me guidance and inspiration. We wanted to make a mural that reflects the city and its Westside – specifically focusing on the successes of the people within the entire community who represent Pittsfield. I will use my style of vivid color, thoughtful composition, and bold images to bring a unique work of art to North Street that the city can enjoy and take pride in for years to come.” ~Trinity Rivard

Artist Statement:

My creative process requires me to allow the idea to take me over. Therefore, I am not trying to control the art or idea, but instead let the art control me. People, places, and/or things inspire me, and I will begin creating a concept and refine that concept until it feels complete. A successful concept allows for creative flexibility; I always want to be present in the moment and allow the energy of my surroundings to contribute to the final product. Creating in public allows me to incorporate the vibes of the local community and visually communicate with large, diverse groups. I always want to make something that connects with people but also makes people question, wonder, or see something different each time.

About Trinity:

Trinity Rivard began drawing at age 5 and dreamed of being an artist, but it wasn’t until high school that his love of art began to take shape under the direction of his art teachers and support of his family. One teacher commissioned him to create a cartoon, and another purchased a clay pot he made in class. This not only inspired him, but in retrospect, what might seem like a small act of kindness was a turning point in Trinity’s artistic journey.

Painting throughout college, Trinity continued to create art in hopes that each piece would connect with people in some way. Trinity has participated in numerous group and solo art exhibitions around the Tampa Bay area and has sold hundreds of works of art. His art can be found in private collections locally, nationally, and internationally.

Today, Trinity continues to work larger and larger, creating public and private murals. This allows him to step out of his studio space and into new, and sometimes challenging environments where he uses the unique surroundings as inspiration when creating.
