The Mural Project, aka:
Clinton County History Through the Eyes of Its Children
On the right you see the mural laid out so far…its’ going to be close to 36 feet when finished. There are just little bits of tile to fire and put in place and Sue hopes to begin installation by July 14th.
The photos below tell the story, Sue, Bucky and Sandy worked tirelessly on this project, seeing 1,000 7th graders in Clinton County and working on some of the larger elements of the mural themselves.
Sue tooled many of the tools and molds used in the process, she had me pose for one of the Indian guides and used her creativity and her extensive knowledge of clay to make this mural possible.
It will be installed on the Government Center building in downtown Plattsburgh to celebrate the Quadricentenial of the Lake Champlain Region.
The image of the ship was projected onto paper then transferred to a large 8′ x 4′ slab,
then worked on by adding relief.
