Two JP Residents Selected for Boston’s Artists-in-Residence Program

Two Jamaica Plain residents were two of 10 artists selected for the second year of Boston AIR, the city's artists-in-residence program. Salvador Jimenez-Flores and Maria Molteni, both of JP, were chosen by a selection committee of current Boston AIR participants, local arts professionals, Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) leadership and city staff. Firsthand knowledge of the cultures and communities of Boston was a factor in the artists being selected. Jimenez-Flores, an interdisciplinary artist born and raised in Jalisco, México, is currently participating in a two-year­long artist residency at the Harvard Ceramics Program through the Office of the Arts at Harvard University. He is also a resident teaching artist at Urbano Project, and his art exhibition, I Am Not Who You Think I Am, debuted at the Urbano Project on April 29th in its Jamaica Plain gallery space as part of ArtWeek Boston.
