The American Mural Project

Connecticut and Long Island are rich in the arts. Literature, museums, and giant murals. It’s all here.

Today we’re featuring an encore presentation of The Arts in Our Backyard. We focused on three art events in our area: a local storyteller who writes children’s books that take on challenging topics, an artist who spent the last 20 years creating what has been described as the largest indoor collaborative artwork in the world, and we spoke with the new director of the Parrish Museum on Long Island.

The arts in our backyard, once again.
