THE HAVERSTRAW RIVERARTS TILE PROJECT

ABOUT

The Haverstraw RiverArts & Music Festival welcomed community members (young and mature) on July 11, 2015 to become part of a public art tile project, in Emeline Park, Haverstraw during the Haverstraw RiverArts & Music Festival. 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: "Animals of the Hudson River" Community Tile Mural

Each participant drew Striped Bass, turtles, Wood Ducks and animals found indigenous to the Hudson River. They chose their animals from a picture reference of a variety of Hudson River animals onto tile, then glazed to add color. Over 100 tiles were then fired over the summer of 2015.
