CAROUSEL ROUNDING BOARDS
Thanks to a grant from the Friends of Mitchell Park, Mitchell Park's signature carousel is being made more beautiful by the addition of original paintings of 14 locally-inspired themes. Each original painting has being created by a local artist, then was digitized and reproduced for mounting in the available spaces. Here are images of some of the paintings (all artwork is © Greenport Village)
