Flood Wall Mural
Kady Perry puts finishing touches on a mural on Water St. in Binghamton to commemorate the terrible impact of the 2011 floods. The project was sponsored by the S.O.M. Scholars at Binghamton University. The students pick a community project each year and this year the projects are flood related. Previous projects have been the Discovery Center Story Garden and the Laurel Community Garden among others.
Kady Perry, a Binghamton muralist, spoke with groups of flood victims through Project Renew, a mental health project for those affected by the floods. She created a “wordle” based on their words. The flood wall was painted green for a great length of the wall which is a popular walking/biking trail that skirts the river all the way to Cheri Lindsay Park beyond the Binghamton Plaza. “Passersby were yelling encouragement all weekend,” Perry noted.
