SWAMPSCOTT, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — There was an unusual sight at a park in Swampscott on Tuesday, as hundreds of multi-color pinwheels lined the sidewalks in honor of International Peace Day.
There were dozens of kids at Linscott Park Tuesday, as they worked hard to place around 1,000 pinwheels in the ground. Rachel Eisenberg is an art teacher at the Hadley School and Clark Elementary and she is the mastermind behind this project.
The little forest of pinwheels was her idea, to celebrate International Peace Day on Tuesday.
"This is the Pinwheels for Peace art installation, and it happens on International Day of Peace," said Eisenberg.
After a year of being physically and emotionally isolated because of the pandemic, Eisenberg said making pinwheels is good therapy for the kids. She said the students have worked hard making pinwheels.
"It's been a really important way for the kids in our community to come together in a collaborative art making experience," said Eisenberg.
She added, this event is a way for the community to be together once again.
