Student Mural on Display at Foodtown

Haldane students collaborate on painting

A mural hanging at the exit of Foodtown in Cold Spring is the result of a collaboration between three Haldane students and high school art teacher Tom Locascio.

During the 2015-16 school year, working under the guidance of Locascio, Wylie Thornquist and Jonas Petkus conceived of and created Sky Burial, a 64-inch by 51-inch acrylic-on-canvas painting. Cameron Henderson provided artistic vision and support, and Paul Satkowski, the manager of Foodtown, worked with members of the Haldane Arts Booster Club to display it at the store.

Thornquist and Henderson are students at Williams College and Petkus is a junior at Haldane. Last year the piece was recognized by the Putnam Arts Council as Best Collaborative Work.
