New mural unveiled at Keene Central

KEENE-Students, faculty and staff came together to give "A Sense of Place," to those entering the doors of Keene Central School.

That is the title of a mural that can now be viewed at the entrance to the school, a project which combined the skills of the "school community," according to art teacher Cheryl MacFadden.

"This was a project where everyone in the school community - students, teachers, all the staff, administration and board of education - worked to make hundreds of tiles to put into this mural," MacFadden said. "The sum of the parts is greater than the individual, and that is the way that things are here at Keene Central."

Community members were able to get a first look at the mural June 23, when the school unveiled it during an evening ceremony on the last day of school for students.

Students have worked on the project with the help of ceramic artist Sue Burdick Young, MacFadden, fourth-grade teacher Chad Filipski, and science teacher Mary Werner.

"Just like a mosaic, all of the pieces are beautiful and have come together to make this," MacFadden said.
