A reception for local artists in the mayor’s office, with several of the loaned pieces in the background.

I am so grateful to the New Rochelle Art Association for loaning about twenty outstanding works of art to the mayor’s office at City Hall.  We began this practice shortly after I took office — since then, the Art Association has swapped in new pieces every year or two.  For me, of course, it is a pleasure to be surrounded by wonderful artwork, but, even more importantly, I am able to showcase local talent for visitors from far and wide.
