Extremely grateful for wonderful public art
It's a joy to watch the young artists' excitement as they fill in Jill's sketches with brilliant paint colors, with support from Henrietta Wilson. The colorful mural is vibrant, fresh and imaginative. It provides an educational, and very playful, entry to Haller Park, with its recently expanded child-centered, family focus.
I live in the county close to Arlington, which is my adopted “home town.” I'm extremely grateful to all those who continue to contribute so much to our quality of life. Sarah Arney, president of the Arlington Arts Council, is a superb example of dedicated and effective community leadership.
A recent Sunday Herald comic strip stressed the importance of STEM education (Science, technology, engineering, math). One of the comic's characters then urged that the emphasis should be on STEAM — “A” being art.
Again, my grateful thanks to all those who have contributed so much to STEAM in Arlington!
