See Connecticut Mural Project’s traveling mural at Monroe’s library

Danielle Haniph, of St. Joseph High School's Class of ‘23, founder and project coordinator of The Connecticut Mural Project, stands by the traveling mural at Edith Wheeler Memorial Library in Monroe.

MONROE, CT — The Connecticut Mural Project’s traveling banner will be on display in the Monroe Lions Café at Edith Wheeler Memorial Library for public viewing until July 31.

The mural, representing Connecticut’s 22nd Senatorial District of Monroe, Trumbull and Bridgeport, is made possible through a partnership between State Sen. Marilyn Moore, D-Bridgeport, and the Trumbull Nature and Arts Center.

The service project is dedicated to uniting towns and communities through murals.

In 2022, the project completed two community murals made of paper feathers that were hand-painted by local children. The 10-by-4-foot banner features the artwork of children from Monroe (Monroe and Stepney elementary schools), Trumbull and Bridgeport.

The banner is based on the theme “Kaleidoscope”, which is the technical term for a group of butterflies.

“By hanging the banner in the Lions Cafe, this is an excellent way for Monroe residents to see the artwork created by children in our town,” said Nicole Cignoli, director of Edith Wheeler Memorial Library.

Edith Wheeler Memorial Library is at 733 Monroe Turnpike.
