Residents prepare to pull the cover on the new community mural on the east side of Marcellus Town Hall. Snow didn't stop the residents from coming out to support the student artists who created the mural.
Marcellus The first snowfall of the year didn’t stop Marcellus village and town residents from unveiling the second community mural, Thursday, Oct. 27.
Town and village residents and officials joined the artists as the large painting depicting a railroad area was unveiled at its new permanent home, the east side of Marcellus Town Hall.
The murals are a part of a series of art to be created and installed in Marcellus. The art is a vision of former Mayor Fred Eisenberg, who hoped to beautify the village and attract visitors.
The mural, which depicts the railroad and creek, shows two children and two men with a dog. One of the students who helped create the mural, Shane Carey, was used as a model for one of the adults in the painting.
“I feel like we’re going to leave a mark in the village,” Carey said.
Four of the students who worked on the mural were present at the unveiling.
