From April 10 to 20, the Mamaroneck Historical Murals will be launched throughout the
Village of Mamaroneck. Street artists from around the world will create six spectacular wall
paintings that pay tribute to the rich history of the Village. The Historical Murals Project is
sponsored by the Mamaroneck Historical Society, Village of Mamaroneck Arts Council, and
Street Art for Mankind, the Larchmont-based nonprofit organization producing the project.
“This will be an incredible artistic and community experience,” promises Audrey Decker, a
co-founder of Street Art for Mankind. “It offers people of all ages the chance to see artists
imaginatively interpret our foundational stories and celebrate our values.”
Residents and visitors are invited to meet the artists, watch the murals take shape, and
participate in special activities during Spring Break. The week-long program culminates in
an inaugural Art Walk and festivities on Saturday afternoon, April 20, starting at 1:00p.m.
How do adverse childhood events affect the mental and physical health of children? How might these events have affected you as an adult? How can we use this information to understand and improve our community? Join a screening and discussion of RESILIENCE, a one-hour documentary that delves into the science of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the birth of a new movement to treat and prevent toxic stress. Learn more and explore how resilience can be supported and strengthened and how our community can respond.
The Westchester Resilience Coalition builds awareness of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) as a public health concern. The Coalition seeks to foster individual, family and community resilience in Westchester County by supporting development of creative responses to the challenge of ACEs.
The vision of the Coalition is that all services in Westchester are informed by and aligned with the science of ACEs and resilience, and by an understanding of how protective factors strengthen individuals and communities.
