A couple of years ago, some ugly graffiti was found around Ridgefield, including at the high school. The Ridgefield Youth Commission looked for a way to respond.
They hired local artists Joann and Bruce Hunter to design a mural for the side of the youth barn. In March 2018 hundreds of volunteers placed quarter-inch porcelain tiles on the barn. The message: kindness, inclusion, tolerance. An abstract design, no words. For each viewer to interpret.
