Announcing the New Children’s Mural Installation Fundraiser

The Ridgefield Library is thrilled to announce a collaboration with The Maurice Sendak Foundation and the vision of Ridgefield artist Cynthia V. Meyers for the creation of the Children’s Mural to be located in the Philip and Christine Lodewick Children’s Library.  The Children’s Mural is a permanent installation Library fundraiser comprised of 120 named glass tiles of original artwork by Cynthia V. Meyers and featuring the art of Maurice Sendak.  Ms. Meyer’s whimsical line drawing illustrations on each 8-inch by 8-inch tile are a Love Letter to Ridgefield, an ode to children’s literature and an homage to the magic of childhood.  Due to the special nature of this unique donation opportunity, tiles are expected to sell out quickly.  Stop by the Children’s Library to see an exhibit of sample mural tiles.

The Library is grateful to the Maurice Sendak Foundation for their partnership on this project. Special thanks to founding sponsor USAlliance Financial whose support is given in memory of Simon R. M. Walton and to the Friends of the Ridgefield Library for their support.  Please go to https://ridgefieldlibrary.ejoinme.org/Mural for more information and to purchase a tile, or contact the Library’s Development Director, Jane Lindenburg, at [email protected] or call (203) 438-2282 ext. 104.
