Students help beautify 'Depot' wall

A dozen Chenango Valley High School art students volunteered time this summer to help paint a mural to beautify the "Depot" wall near Chenango Valley's athletic fields (it's located behind the tennis courts near the Chenango Valley High School).

The wall is part of a portion of the building that is currently owned by Broome County.

Cindy O'Brien, County Legislator for District 10, helped to bring the project to fruition. CV art teachers Karen Krawczyk, Robert Zanot and Andrew Fitzsimmons helped to turn an art vision into reality through the creation and painting of this mural design.

Broome County helped to prep the area first. They patched cracks, power washed/scraped to remove flaking paint and primed the wall with white paint.

The "mural team" began the colorful painting portion of the project on Monday, July 10. O'Brien also lent a hand in the painting process.

It took 11 days and 18 gallons of paint to complete the mural on the 19' by 200' wall. (See below for final result).

O'Brien also gave Certificates of Recognition on July 27 to acknowledge everyone's hard work.

A huge thank you to all involved -- including District 10 County Legislator Cindy O'Brien, Broome County, our CV art teachers (Karen Krawczyk, Robert Zanot & Andrew Fitzsimmons), our 12 high school art students who volunteered their time this summer (Kayla Ferris, Lauren Marble, Tara Terpstra, Craig Salzman, Julie Worden, Mia Hause, Linsey Reardon, Megan Proutey, Abby Pepples, Cassidy Hopkins, Carly O'Brien & Rebecca Mercik), the CV Maintenance Department for supplying materials, and CV Superintendent David Gill!
