Oak Street Mural
This time-lapse film captures 16 days of work on the Oak Street mural, a new addition to the cultural vibrancy of Rockland’s downtown. The project was guided by local community mural artist Alexis Iammarino who runs SaturdayStudio at the Rockland Recreation Center. She was joined by two professional Baltimore-based mural artists, “Jessie and Katey”, who have been collaborating on large-scale murals and installations across the country since 2001. The mural was also completed with help of local artists and volunteers of all ages.
