A paint fit for Fenway Park
Benjamin Moore is putting a “Monster Green” coat on its 12-year partnership with the Boston Red Sox with the launch of The Fenway Collection, a limited-edition collection of paints featuring the colors of Fenway Park.
The Fenway Collection is now available exclusively at select New England-area Benjamin Moore retailers.
The Fenway Collection encapsulates the spirit of Fenway Park by bringing together the ballpark’s five most iconic colors, including Green Monster, Boston Blue, Boston Red, Baseline White and Foul Pole Yellow.
The collection’s hallmark color, Green Monster, is also available in Benjamin Moore Regal Select Exterior Low Lustre. In addition to being sold by the quart, Green Monster is available by the gallon.
To celebrate the collection’s launch, Benjamin Moore and the Boston Red Sox joined forces to transform Bunker Little League Park, located in West Roxbury, Massachusetts, into a "mini Fenway Park" by repainting the field with the collection and constructing a miniature Green Monster. The surprise renovation of the remodeled park, which was completed overnight, was a group effort made possible by local Benjamin Moore volunteers, retailers and contractors to bring this gift to the neighborhood.
