We invite all local artists to submit their ideas and design. Get your art seen at our local Dorchester Dispensary, a mural for the community to LIVE LOWKEY!

At Lowkey Dispensary, we’re launching our first community mural design competition to highlight local art inspired by the community from our own block. We’re looking for a design that represents not only Dorchester but specifically Codman square. This campaign is one of many community projects we will launch to support local artists. Our goal is to make this mural and pieces from local artists a staple in the community and our dispensary.  #livelowkey
