and finally one of my most 'fav' female artist in CT "on the move", Ellen Griesedieck and the American Mural Project, you go Ellen!!

AMP finishing up their DC project after 18 months of work with over 300 students!

The American Mural Project is a three-dimensional painting so large that a special building is being created for it. The project is a celebration of American ingenuity, productivity, and commitment to work. It seeks to inspire, to invite collaboration, and to reveal to people of all ages the many contributions they can make to American culture. It is intended as a tribute and a challenge.
