WELCOME TO NEWBURGH — Using 25 gallons of paint, Pat Nunnari of the King Street Sign Co. this month transformed a blank concrete wall on Water Street into a 99-by-12-foot mural. Spearheaded by Naomi Hersson-Ringskog, founder of the nonprofit Dept of Small Interventions, the project was a collaboration between Nunnari; Central Hudson; the Orange County Citizens Foundation; and five local businesses. “Newburgh doesn’t have a sign at any of its six entrances that welcomes visitors,” said Herrson-Ringskog. “This is part of the city’s renaissance.” (Photo provided)
