The mural for Heady Field is designed to bring positive messaging and prevention to the community of Rockaway Borough. The goal of the mural is to lead by good example by showing positive images of community, fellowship, and unity.
Positive figures and activities, as well as encouraging and motivating words, fill the mural in order to demonstrate good choices we can all make in our lives. It is our hope that members of the community will look to the mural as a source of inspiration for their own lives.
The mural was conceived and executed by a group of students from the community, primarily from LMTI local WRRD chapter, under the guidance of LIFE Center Stage teaching artists Arianne Petersen and Ellen Avigliano.
The students brainstormed and planned out the imagery for the mural, painted the design on canvas panels, and plan to then install the painted panels in Heady Field in Summer of 2018.
