Art hits the wall in New London


NEW LONDON — Block by block, as volunteers sponged and dabbed paint Thursday onto the looming, white exterior walls of Mord’s Hardware in New London, the shape of a grinning little boy sitting on an inner tube in the water began to take shape.

Depending on how many volunteers show up and how fast they work, the completed mural could be done by today, giving visitors a huge work of art to look at when they enter the town’s Main Street.
