YWCA


The New Britain building for the YWCA hosts a mural with female characters and themes.
YWCA used to mean Young Women's Christian Association but I spent some time on the national
YWCA website trying to confirm that, but these days they seem to use only the initials.


Today we are linked to Monday Mural.

I tried to max the photo so I could see it in detail but couldn't. It looks bright, cheerful and symbolic.

The people out front show us viewers how large the mural is. I would like to see some of the details. ;))

Thanks for reloading this, Jack. Now I can see so much more. :)

We have something similar here too. Nice one.

I think you are correct in the initials. When I was around 15, my mother signed me up for some dancing lessons at the local YWCA. Nothing I learned there was ever put into use. Square dancing was out of the question, I didn't tango even when I was in Argentina, and I never met a guy who wanted to waltz.

What a terrific, colorful mural!! I do love to dance, but with my knees today, it's pretty much out of the question, darn it!! Hope your new week is off to a great start, Jack!! Have fun, enjoy and keep your camera close at hand!!

Great mural, Jack! I've never belonged to a Y but they do a great job with all of their activities.

Interesting mural. Looks like it has stood up well over time both in content and against the weather.

yWca? It died 5 years ago. It's a parking lot now. YMCA still going strong. Long time runnin' too.

Nice one! A pleasure to see this.

Somehow the colors on this mural led me to assume it was in Florida. Wrong. I especially like the movement of the water and how it seems to have its source in the stars. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

You've got me thinking now...I can't recall ever seeing a YWCA. Would like to though. Wonderful mural...plenty of content.

Not bad, but it is complicated: a bit too much perhaps...

It looks like it was quite a collaborative piece. Even if they've dropped the "women" in the YWCA they're at least prominent in the mural.
