Mural Panel Celebration
Join Arts in Action and Rockland Public Library to celebrate new mural panels created by young Rockland artist Winter Adams, for the vibrant Hallway Mural. These new paintings were designed and painted by Adams with the Library staff’s input and encouragement and created as an independent project last spring. A freshman at Oceanside High school, Adams is among the young artists who envisioned and participated in the creation of the original panels made in 2016. Let’s celebrate her talent and commend her effort, care, and commit to community arts!
Paintings for this community mural began in 2016, through an exciting ongoing collaboration between Arts in Action, Library Director Amy Levine, and the devoted staff at the Rockland Public Library. A core group of youth artists and community volunteers designed and painted 17 paintings during the first year. All panels are original artwork created to celebrate themes of
learning, the library as a community center, a love of words, and the power of imagination! Young artists in this program continue to create and bring new panels to life each year,
contributing to this imaginative and spirited hallway.
Arts in Action’s Community Mural Art Workshop focuses on collaborative mural work and creating one-of-a-kind beautification pieces while also creating opportunities for young artists to showcase and share their talents in actionable ways by coupling fine arts education with community arts projects. The Arts in Action mural program is hosted by the Flanagan Community Building/YMCA and run by artist Alexis Iammarino. AiA is a program of Rockland After-School Alliance (RASA) and supported by RSU13 Adult & Community Education with support from the ANONIMO Foundation.
