Supporters of the Terrie Hess House child advocacy center, a program under Prevent Child Abuse Rowan, were on hand Monday morning to see a mural unveiled at the center.
The mural was a collaborative creation by four artists who spent months painting the piece, which is affixed to the building on Woodson Street.
Artists Larry Ferguson and Betty Brunn-Pewtress were on hand to help reveal the piece. Graphic artists Annie Arntz and Kim Dickard were unable to attend.
Ferguson said there were months of brainstorming on ideas, but all of the artists “had the same goal in mind,” to create something to welcome the children as they walk into the center.
The center provides help to children who have been sexually or physically abused.
The mural measures 4 feet by 8 feet and is painted on plywood. The phrase “Let Them Be Children” is painted on the colorful piece.
See Tuesday’s Post for more details.
