During the painting day, some children came by and proposed bugs and worms. They drew a few ideas for her to include on the mural. Her family ended up helping her to finalize this first, largemural project on a beautiful fall day and are, of course, quite proud. Look closely to find monarchs and cormorants, compost and green roofs. Enjoy this whimsical view of Roosevelt Island as a green center for the city!
...And next year watch for the "Call for Community Artists." We will send it out quickly so that more RIGC members can get involved and sponsor more art for Roosevelt Island and continue to spread all our green ideas!
