Grillo and Apprentice Make Sunflower Fields
These photographs show a young apprentice of Artist Esther Grillo and the artist herself painting the sunflower fields of the Monarch Butterfly Landscape, 2002, a mural work now in progress. The girl taking part in the project is Cindy Linder, 11 years old, who has contributed 80 hours of community service for this project. Grillo is once again coordinating the mural project. She has provided murals for many of Rockaway’s discarded bus waiting stations along Shore Front Parkway, often working with young art students and with apprentices.
