When the new Dollar Tree was constructed on North Avenue at the Boulevard, City planners weren’t too happy about the big blank wall facing North.  What to do?

With the New Rochelle Municipal Arts Commission taking the lead and with Dollar Tree footing the bill, the City sponsored a competition, open only to local artists, to design an appropriate mural for the space.

The submissions exceeded our hopes.  Take a look at all the entries in this video.  The winner is number 25 by Aston Lemelle-Thomas.  What a great demonstration of the creative talent in our city!
