Crozet Community Mural

Artist Sam Gray and Brownsville Elementary 5th graders have completed a year-long community project to celebrate the diversity of their school community. Inspired by Phil James’s book, Secrets of the Blue Ridge, students learned of the rich history of Crozet, and more specifically, about the communities old and new that surround Brownsville Elementary. Teacher, Susan Greenwood notes that the realization that the community’s strength comes both from students whose families have been in Crozet for generations and those who have moved into the area within the last ten years has dramatically changed students’ attitudes towards each other.” To see more of Sam Gray’s work, click here.
