Gold International Machinery Mural by Alan Guyett


Along the side of the Pawtucket fixture that is the Gold International Machinery Company, a bright mural gleams with subtle tones of blue, yellow, and silver. The mural dates back to the late 70’s, a company commission for beautification that went to artist Alan Guyett. It depicts industrial machinery, equipment, and lasers—the sales and manufacturing makeup of the Gold Machinery group, a Pawtucket-based, family-owned small business that has served the global manufacturing community for 52 years, spanning three generations. At the time he painted the mural, Rhode-Island born Alan Guyett taught metal sculpture at the Rhode Island School of Design and was active in the Providence art scene. He later moved to Chico, California, where he continued to teach sculpture. A veteran of the Vietnam War, there he underwent treatment from the US Marine Corps for Agent Orange poisoning and eventually died of complications caused by the chemical. His mural remains exactly as he left and will preserve his memory for years to come.
