Rain won't stop a tugboat; yesterday's weather only slowed our mural collaborators. For weeks, the . The brick wall of C-Town got a base white coat this weekend.
On Sunday night it was time to really begin. Each contributor has made a woodcut of a tugboat. Woodcuts are made into prints. Prints are photographed. The photographs are projected onto the wall at night so the artist can trace them in order to paint by day.
The first participants: Sleepy Hollow High School art teacher, Kristen Dreher, who signed up five of her students up for the project, and is doing a big tugboat herself. Then one of her students begins working from the projector's light: Bernardo Rodriguez.
As Dreher paints her shapes in black, a steady stream of her former students come by to chat. The sky is clear with dramatic clouds; the traffic never ceases. And the wall begins to come to life in the night.
