Thanks to a grant awarded by the Greater Rochester Arts & Cultural Trust, the Boys and Girls Club was able to work with locally renowned muralist, Maggie Panetta, to create a 200-square foot mural guided by the theme, “Healthy Lifestyles.”

Panetta, part owner of Treedome creative studio, led workshops with Club youth to brainstorm what Healthy Lifestyles look like to them at The Place, and integrated their input in her final work.
