Giving Hope

A stroll through downtown Westerly can tell visitors and residents a lot about the rich history of this nearly 350-year-old community. A dozen murals in Westerly - and four in neighboring Pawcatuck, Connecticut - remain a conversation starter two years after they went up during a five-day painting festival in the fall of 2017. Bricks & Murals, the nonprofit that was the driving force behind it, completed another project this past summer called The Harmony Trail. Jim Hummel has the details in this month’s Spotlight.
