Life Lines Visual Arts Troupe "Capturing Memories" in new mural
CFL’s “Life Lines” Visual Arts Troupe recently unveiled an original piece of artwork at the Dedalus Foundation Gallery in Sunset Park’s Industry City. High school students worked collaboratively to conceptualize and ultimately create the 8′ x 4′ canvas mural, titled “Capturing Memories,” which depicts images of Sunset Park families along the horizon, from the vantage point of the park. “The park symbolizes family, togetherness and memories,” said participant Stephanie Yu. “Sunset Park is a tight-knit community and the mural was created to represent that closeness.”
