RiverzEdge team brightens police station with mural

March 3, 2014

WOONSOCKET — If walls could talk, the lobby of the police station would say they’re part of a cold, institutional space without a lick of distinction from a million other government buildings.
Or at least they used to.

Thanks to a group of young volunteers from RiverzEdge Arts Project, the mint-green, cinderblock lobby is in the midst of a transformation that will soon have it speaking a new language. They’re painting a mural on the walls that will feature colorful, positive images of the Woonsocket Police Department and give the lobby a look like no other building anywhere, government or otherwise.

“It’s very bright, very welcoming, and I think it does show off the pride the chief has in his police department,” said Brad Fesmire, project director of RiverzEdge. “Before, it was kind of industrial-looking.”
