Artist Statement

By Artist PAWS21

“Perseverance” is about art imitating life. The maturing artist must persevere and break though all obstacles in between them and their artistic expression and goals.

This mural is dedicated in loving memory of Meredith Lippman. Her work to promote the arts throughout Hudson County embodied the essence of perseverance.
