  • With a 350-square-foot blank hallway wall as their canvas, student-artists at Hampton Bays High School used their talents to design and paint a colorful and inspiring work of art that captures the spirit of their school. The mural came to fruition as part of a unity mural project created by local artist Joyce Raimondo, who works with students across Long Island to foster positive expression through art. “With so much tension in our country today, I wanted to create a project that would give young people a creative forum for teamwork and peaceful collaboration,” said Raimondo. “The schools’ mottos come to life with murals by students, for students.”<br/><span style='font-style:italic'>Submitted Feb 22</span>
