(PHOTO: Ms. Coble is mounting one of the tiles in the “boy and the dragon” mural.  It will depict a Chinese tale about a young boy who outwits a sea dragon in order to save his town. The dragon also makes reference to the historic Dragon Coaster of nearby Playland Amusement Park.)

Developed in conjunction with the Park’s 100th anniversary celebrations in 2009, the project will eventually include 3-5 large murals with themes of folktales and local history.  The murals will be mounted on the panels of the brick wall that separates the waterfront and pavilions from the parking area.  The Clay Tiles Mural Project is being co-sponsored by Arts Westchester and the Town of Rye, in cooperation with the Clay Art Center of Port Chester.
