Students with Arts, Letters, and Numbers Create Opioid Mural in W Sand Lake

Students from Averill Park High School and artists covered the exterior of the Doors of Hope thrift shop and food pantry in West Sand Lake with images of sun, flowers and butterflies conquering a storm to highlight the struggle against opioids. The local community has seen a large number of young people dying from opioid overdoses. Frida Foberg of Arts, Letters, and Numbers discusses the mural project with Mark Dunlea of Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
