Work is underway for the installation of the Tree of Knowledge on the big red wall of Lennoxville Elementary School.
A project years in the making, the design was brought to life by artist Raphaelle Coulombe-Allie, an experienced muralist, and founder and artistic director of MUR MURA. Coulombe-Allie and her three-person team spent the summer working on the mural in pieces, and yesterday they began assembling the base of the mural on the LES wall facing Academy Street.
According to Coulombe-Allie, it’s quite the puzzle, and will take several weeks to complete the installation.
A grand unveiling will take place at the school once it is complete.
In the meantime, passersby can watch the giant puzzle pieces slowly come together on the wall.
