Three new murals grace the Memorial Boulevard side of the New Rochelle Public Library.
The 15-foot by 15-foot panels are the work of New Rochelle artist Dale Zheutlin.
She described herself as "joyous" that city, state and arts forces came together to make the project come to fruition.
"I hope everyone who visits the library leaves a little bit more enriched," Zheutlin said.
The name of the work is "Enlightenment," she said.
Councilman Ivar Hyden said it took 2-1/2 years to get the artwork installed.
He said the idea was pitched as part of the library's renovation project. The idea was to have work outside by the same artist who did murals inside the library.
The collaborators were ArtsWestchester, Friends of the New Rochelle Public Library, the New Rochelle Public Library Foundation, community members and local government.
Hyden said the project only cost around $12,000 to print and install the UV-resistant vinyl. They are digital enlargements of Zheutlin's work.
Mayor Noam Bramson said, as a person with no artistic talent, he appreciated how much work it took to get the murals on the wall of the library.
"This is a thrilling addition to a wonderful public space," he said.
Haina Just-Michael, the president of the library's board of trustees, said that no taxpayer money was used for the project.
"Those guys (meaning the panels) are so natural," she said, "I just can't believe they haven't been there all along."
