Moore seeks suggestions for State House display

State Sen. Michael Moore (D-Millbury) has announced an opportunity to showcase the unique cultural and artistic identity of the Second Worcester District. The Senator is seeking one item that will be featured in a display case at the Massachusetts State House to represent the District.

The theme of the display celebrates Massachusetts’ creative economy. Items that are three dimensional and are visually artistic or creative, and are representative of the local community, are appropriate. The item must not be perishable, and should be no more than 18 inches tall.

Viable suggestions may include hand blown glass, a sculpture, jewelry, a creative item from recycled materials, a miniature painting, a small musical instrument, folk art, photograph, an ornament, stained glass, scrimshaw, pottery, etc.

If you are interested in offering an item for consideration, visit www.SenatorMikeMoore.com or call the office at 617-722-1485. The selected item will be placed on locked display at the State House until the end of the 2017-2018 legislative session after which time it will be returned to the owner.

The Second Worcester District is comprised of eight communities including the Towns of Auburn, Grafton, Leicester, Millbury, Northbridge, Shrewsbury, Upton and the City Worcester.
