MARLBOROUGH – For the next few months, Kennedy’s Restaurant and Pub on Maple Street will have something special on the side.

As in along its walls.

The restaurant is hosting an exhibit featuring more than three dozen pieces of artwork from the permanent collection of Marlborough Public Schools. The artwork is spread across the main floor and the loft upstairs.

“It’s a great way to give back to the community,” said Sharon Decker of Kennedy’s, who helped organize the exhibit.

On Jan. 24, Kennedy’s kicked off the exhibit with a reception featuring MPS students and arts teachers.

“This is incredible,” said Dina Martinelli, an art teacher at Whitcomb Middle School. “This shows what the kids are doing in school.”

According to Decker, the current exhibit will be on display for three months, with plans to rotate new artwork from the city’s schools.
