Art for Liberty Commons

Leo Riikonen’s Eagle Scout project was inspired through visits to his grandparents at Liberty Commons, a long-term healthcare facility, where he noticed the staff taking great care of elderly members of our community.

‘Joy to Liberty Commons’ is a permanent art installation of colorful still life paintings designed to bring happiness to the patients and staff of Liberty Commons. To create them, Leo directed students of the Provincetown Art Association and Museum and Scouts of Troop 71. His project also involved organizing a reception with live music, speeches, an unveiling, and refreshments. It was financed by Adams Lodge AF&AM, Wellfleet along with private donations.
