NORWALK, Conn. -- A team of 16 volunteers recently painted a new mural at the STAR Rubino Family Center in Norwalk.
The mural depicts "friendly farm animals" and was designed by artist Ginny Frank Fischer of Wilton, according to a press release. The mural at 120 East Ave. in Norwalk "illustrates the popular children's song, 'Old McDonald's Farm,' a friendly and familiar tune for young children and parents alike," according to the release.
"The 'Old McDonald's Farm' room is used for activities and meetings attended by parents and their infants or children who have intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as their siblings, STAR therapists and other staff members," the press release said. "STAR Rubino Family Center provides early intervention and necessary therapies though their state recognized Birth to Three Program."
