Cayuga Heights Elementary Mural Project

From Cayuga Heights Elementary School PTA President Leah Yonker

“Our school has been chosen by the Ithaca Murals Initiative to have a mural painted on the side wall of our school (above where the rock garden lives). This group has been responsible for many of the beautiful murals that brighten our town. Our principal Lisa Sahasrabudhe and our art teacher Marlena Doerr have both been instrumental in bringing this program to CHES.

Our fifth graders have been brainstorming themes and proposals are currently being accepted from artists. Once proposals are submitted (Jan 22 is the deadline) the entire school will be able to vote for the winning proposal. Eventually all students will have a chance to do a small section of the mural with the majority of the work being done by the artist.”
