The Mayflower Artist Spotlight Series (M.A.S.S.) is a partnership between local Massachusetts artists and Mayflower Medicinals, a registered Medical Marijuana Treatment Center. M.A.S.S. provides a platform for local qualifying artists to showcase their art by designing packaging for select Mayflower products as well as in-store displays.
The Mayflower Artist Spotlight Series is part of the broader Positive Impact Plan, a set of company initiatives that positively impact communities that have been disproportionately affected by cannabis prohibition. This program empowers qualifying individuals with an interest in graphic design, packaging art, or branding. Featured artists integrate their passion for art with the real-world experience of working with Mayflower Medicinal’s marketing, compliance, and operations teams. For every product unit sold within the M.A.S.S. series, $1 is donated towards Unbound Visual Arts, a local organization dedicated to supporting local artists.
Current Artist Spotlight
Leandro Lopez is an Argentine artist based out of Fitchburg, MA. He graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University, with a focus on graphic arts and screen printing. Leandro has always had an interest in accessible art and how art, community and the public intersect. He credits cartoons for this desire to create things that can be appreciated by all – great cartoons being accessible not just by children but the parents who might be watching as well. Today, much of Leandro’s focus is aimed at community building, often working with bands and musicians to design merch and put on shows and events, but also by working to create affordable studio spaces in Fitchburg.
COOKIES N’ CREAM • 3.5G
“With the Cookies N’ Cream artwork I was trying to convey the feeling of comfort, relaxation, and home.
This strain is known to lull people into a calm state, providing long-lasting relief to patients throughout the day. I wanted to zero in on that feeling of relaxation you get when you’re in a familiar kitchen.”
