Music Conservatory of Westchester Outdoor Mural Unveiling Party is This Sunday

The Music Conservatory of Westchester invites the entire Westchester County community for an outdoor Mural Unveiling Party on Sunday, September 30 from 1pm-4pm on the Conservatory’s grounds at 216 Central Avenue in White Plains! The nonprofit community music school is celebrating the unveiling of the full-scale painted mural designed by local Westchester County students as part of the “Colors of Music” Student Mural Contest. This free family-friendly event from 1pm-4pm will offer food trucks, live music, games and activities, and more!

The “Colors of Music” Student Mural Contest provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for artistic youth in Westchester County to create their vision of what the theme of “Multi-Cultural Music” means to them in a large-scale mural form. This public art project is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The final mural was created in collaboration with professional mural artist Jonathan Villoch, the two winners of the contest, Mya Madison Davis, 9th grader from Pelham High School, Ciara Sergi, 9th grader from White Plains High School, and finalists Emma Farley, 7th grader at Albert Leonard Middle School, and Lucy Schwartzreich, 11th grader at Horace Greely High School.

An adjudication panel of art experts from Westchester County and Manhattan as well as community leaders decided the winning mural artwork concepts.
