Faith, Hope and Love. Those are the messages tied to Seeking Joy, a mural inspired and modeled after Les Iris by Van Gogh. This mural was done by the students of the Holy Family Institute’s Cathy Pelusi Art Studio and donated to Common Ministries on Brighton Road.
This mural and it’s message are so important. Common Ministries operates the largest food pantry in the area and serves the needs of many of the area’s homeless. A few days before they unveiled the mural, students and teachers worked on adding the garden boxes with the written message of what they wanted the mural to represent. For the students this was all about giving back to the community. For the community it's a wonderful addition to the landscape and a bright spot in everyone’s lives.
The list of artists (students, teachers and assistants) is long, but each one deserves credit for this:
