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.

TRINITY EXPRESS • 3.5G
“I wanted to envision a glimpse into an Abstract and Geometric Triangular Travelling technique... A visionary way for the Power of the Trinity to Travel through space and time with ease. And here it is... An interconnected ’subway’ of inter dimensional travel celestially known as the Trinity Express. It can also be seen as a closeup of a pathway or vein of a robotic/mechanical being whose source of life is microscopic and triangular in nature, flowing effortlessly in a perpetual loop through the system, providing it with life. Whatever system this represents, it can often be seen in the closed eye visual realm inspired by the Power of the Trinity Express. Hop on board, hold on, and Embrace everything that comes your way.”
