New Mural Growing


A community garden is growing on the back of the building that houses Campus Corner Restaurant at 90 Bridge Street.  Once again Outside Art: Plattsburgh Art Project is creating another mural to brighten up Plattsburgh.



After some modification to the original design the nature themed mural outside the Plattsburgh Public Library has been completed after four years.   On July 16th at 4 PM the mural will be dedicated to the memory of Jerry Seguin, one of the artists who worked on "Read and Grow: Dream Garden Mural."  The dedication will be held on the Brinkerhoff side of PPL where the mural can be seen.

Following the dedication there will be a memorial film about Jerry shown inside the library.  Attendees are advised to be prepared to wear masks depending upon the library's policies. 


Julius, great nephew of astronaut Michael Anderson, sits in a mini FB-111 jet 
reproduction during the Plattsburgh July 4th parade.  Michael Anderson died in 2003
during the disastrous re-entry of space shuttle Columbia.  He was born in 
Plattsburgh and at one time was stationed at the Plattsburgh Air Force Base.  
The Anderson family visited Plattsburgh to attend the dedication of the mural located
 on Durkee Street depicting the astronaut.
