Sheepshead Bay Mural Artist Honored This Sunday

The Bay Improvement Group is holding a memorial service for the artist behind a mural on East 15th Street off Sheepshead Bay Road.

The group is gathering on Sunday, November 7, at noon to remember the life and work of Faith Palmer-Persen, who died of cancer just before New Years. Palmer-Persen was commissioned by BIG in the 1990s to do the work, and the group regularly cleans and restores it.

Family and friends of the artist will be in attendance, and the entire community is invited to join them for the service.
