Old Town - New City. Working in partnership with the city of Old Town, eighth graders at Leonard Middle School researched the history of their community. Guided by scholars from the Penobscot Nation and Old Town Museum, students gathered ideas from community members to create a mural with Maine artist Abigail Gray Swartz. This project received funding from a grant by the Maine Humanities Council and from the city of Old Town. The panels were printed at Graphix Design, a local business operated by Tony Sullivan. The murals are displayed in Peace Pole Park at the corner of Main and Center Streets.
