Gerard Collins paints public mural

Gerard Collins. 2001 Strathbutler Recipient creates public mural for Saint John school

A classroom at Hazen-White/St. Francis School has been transformed into a literacy retreat, thanks to the help of local professional artist Gerard Collins who, out of the kindness of his heart, has transfigured an obsolete blackboard into a tranquil scene he sees just outside the window of his lake-side property.
