A four-person crew, led by artist Stephen Smith, has been painting a large mural at 20 High St. that’s an homage to illustrator Robert McCloskey. The completed mural was dedicated during a ceremony Wednesday.
Before painting started on the side of Hamilton's former municipal building, Smith had the pleasure of speaking over the phone with McCloskey's daughter, Sally. Those familiar with McCloskey's award-winning children's books already know Sally, in a way. McCloskey's 1949 book, "Blueberries for Sal," was inspired by her.
