Brushing up at PAC
All this week, volunteers wielding paintbrushes will be busy on the stage of the Performing Arts Center (PAC) at Martha's Vineyard Regional High School where they are making colorful progress on the Tisbury Mural Project. Close to completion, the project is under the leadership of Paul Brissette, head of the high school's art department, with the help of artist Anne Grandin and architect Tom Larson. Ms. Grandin and Mr. Larson created the mural, "Gateway to the Island," which won the contest to design a mural for the 10- by 45-foot exterior wall of the Vineyard Haven Stop & Shop. Composed of nine large panels, the mural will be unveiled this spring. Anyone who would like to participate this week should stop by the PAC.
