sits near the boundary between Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown, not there is much of one. This mural project, in its heatwave stage now of slow-going sunburnt days (complete with bee sting) and long nights, has brought together many from both villages and beyond.
A tugboat is nothing without the collaboration.
Here's the grand list of contributors:
Kristen Dreher, awesome art teacher who has been at the wall almost as much as Jeff. She recruited five her students:
Bernando Rodriguez, Junior
Andres Orellana, Senior
Austin Tyler Lantz, Senior
Swiltra Alejo, Senior
And many more:
Jamie Kimak, recent graduate of Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore, helped on the background and worked with her boyfriend Karlito on a woodcut. Karlito goes by the name Mata Ruda for his art projects, which include a mural for Open Walls in Baltimore. See very cool YouTube of his Baltimore work here.
Tim Tranzillo, Hudson Valley painter, who paints, much in the vein of the Hudson River School tradition, beautiful landscape scenes of the valley. He makes his living painting sets for movies and TV shows.
Mark Ceconi, woodcut artist, the very same man who did the amazing Mark Twain and Washington Irving prints just inside the main entrance of the across the street. Ceconi has long family roots in Sleepy Hollow.
Christina Costello, works at Manhattan's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and happened to be exploring tugboats in her work when this project presented itself.
Chuk Hognell, Tarrytown's first tattoo artist with a shop on Neperan called and a part-time tattooing gig in Iceland.
Ilsa Schreiber-Noll, Tarrytown woodcut artist who makes mixed media books. See her profiled on Patch sculpting a book from wood and inviting us into her home studio. Her art has also been showcased at the former Eyebuzz Gallery.
Jeff White, of Sleepy Hollow, creative engineer of this whole thing, who also works at MoMA. His artisitic work has been gravitating toward woodcuts for a while now.
Honorable mentions to:
Tony Z. and Gregorio who helped paint the white base coat.
Stay tuned for the next installment on the wall.
