Artist Angela Ellsworth (left) and Huntington Clerk-Treasurer Christi Scher flank the community art project Ellsworth helped students at the Boys & Girls Club create during the 2012-13 school year. The project was sponsored by the LaFontaine Arts Council as part of its Arts in Education outreach program. The mural, a mosaic made of positive phrases painted by 199 participants and then torn into strips, appears as a heart when viewed from one direction and as the Boys & Girls Club logo when viewed from the other direction. It has been displayed at various businesses over the summer and will remain in the Huntington City Building until early September, when it will rotate through the Huntington County schools.
