Linden Ponds Artists Create Hall of Presidents

February 12, 2015

Hingham, MA --  When Linden Ponds decided they wanted to celebrate the many Presidents of the United States, residents Burt Longenbach and members of his water color painting class responded. 

The artists came together to create The Linden Ponds Hall of Presidents Exhibition which includes a number of charcoal drawings of many Presidents (18 in by 24 in) and four 6ft by 8ft watercolor portraits of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and new this year President Barack Obama. 

"This is the 3rd year the Hall of Presidents Exhibition has been on display at Linden Ponds," said Molly Lynch St. John, Community Services Manager, Linden Ponds.  "The last two years the group had 28 charcoal drawings and three watercolor portraits.  This year they created 11 more charcoal drawings and one more 6ft by 8ft watercolor portrait.  The Hall of Presidents Exhibition at Linden Ponds is spectacular and the residents did an amazing job."
